Bad Brains

"Black Dots is a collection of early songs recorded by Bad Brains. It was recorded at Inner Ear Studios in 1979, which at the time was in Don Zientara's basement. In between songs you can hear Zientara's son talking to H.R. The album was released in 1996 with a complete set of liner notes."

I think "Blackdots" is more essential to the Bad Brains catalogue then any of the other albums or "re-issues" if you want to be more accurate. Where as the tracks on "Blackdots" are similar to "Rock For Light" and the first ROHR album "Blackdots" excels on the fact that it was all recorded in 1979 when the band was still finding themselves and hadn't yet tightened up the rawness of their style so to speak.

Also you get a couple songs that are only found on this album like "Redbone In The City" and "Don't Need It."
