Product Description

Product Description

When Everything Went Black was first released in 1983, Black Flag was in the middle of a backbreaking legal dispute with Unicorn Records. As a result of litigation, the band was prevented from using the Black Flag name on any records. Hence the original packaging for this album, which listed only the names of individual bandmembers on the cover (this was rectified on subsequent issues). It's a double-album (on vinyl) compilation of previously released material and outtakes -- though the European edition features a wholly different running order. The material, dating from 1978 to 1981, is excellent in places, average in others. However, only obsessives need track it down -- as signified by the inclusion of two versions of several songs (including stalwarts "Damaged" and "Police Story").

5.0 out of 5 stars Every home should have one! 21 Oct 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
These recordings of the grounbreaking music that Black Flag became renowned for were all recorded without the aid of Henry Rollins; there are some who still, for some daft reason, believe that Henry WAS Black Flag.
BF were the nighmarish vision of one of the most underrated guitarists of the modern era - Greg Ginn, who, along with some other miscreants, added a new twist to the punk rock genre.
The tracks on offer here cover the turbulent years where vocalists came and went and, according the sleeve notes, anybody who jumped on stage would declare themselves the new singer for Black Flag.
Only 3 singers are featured here, and all have differing styles. They are all, however, underpinned by the frenzied, distortion laden, guitar work of Greg and a very impressive rhythm section (sorry forgot names)
The final track 'crass commercialism' features 'radio adverts' for BF Gigs, whether they are real or not is not relevant; they are very funny.
There are far too many stand out tracks to mention and as we all know all BF fans have their favourites.
This collection should be in every punk's home/ squat / campervan etc

4.0 out of 5 stars best title of an album ever! 1 May 2001
By matt bobby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
although most people will get "the first four years" when wanting to check out pre-rollins flag, they should get this at the same time.not only do you get a song unavailable anywhere else("i dont care"), the versions of the songs done on "jealous again" are far better here.i never liked chavo that much,he just sounds like a thousand other singers.anyway,alot of these songs were recorded in one take, so they come off even more raw than the ones on the e.p.'s.also,while listening to this you get a good idea of just how important henry rollins was to the band. songs like "depression", "room 13", "no more", "police story" and especially "damaged 1" just dont sound nearly as intense as they do with rollins spitting them out.oh yeah, you also get some awesome radio stuff the band did.get this and kick yourself for not being born 15 years earlier.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pre-Henry Flag 20 Nov 2004
By Patrick W. Schubert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For those who are interested in exploring early Black Flag, I would first recommend buying the excellent First Four Years compilation featuring the band's earliest singles and Jealous Again EP. Everything Went Black would be the next logical step. This comp features demos from the same era and provides the listener with a good idea of how the band's sound changed with each vocalist. The earliest material with future Circle Jerks frontman Keith Morris (aka: Johnny Bob Goldstein) demonstrates how different Black Flag sounded from the other punk bands at the time. Their militant and aggressive sound would go on to influence (for better or worse) the numerous hardcore bands that were to follow. Morris had the perfect voice for punk rock; pissed off, snotty and sarcastic. He sounded like (was?) a nerdy, glue sniffing outcast who had been shoved into his locker one too many times. The tracks featuring Ron "Chavo" Reyes are a bit of a let-down in comparasson. Musically, the band shows improvement but Chavo's vocals are not as distinctive as Morris'. It is interesting to hear the Puerto Rican-born frontman contemplating being part of a "White Minority", though. Dez Cedena, Chavo's replacement, had a very powerful and menacing voice that fit Black Flag's sound to a tee. The Dez era is probably my favorite. There is alot of song repetition here. However, this allows the listener to trace the band's development. For those of you who thought BF began with Rollins, this CD should serve as a great history lesson. Highly Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Album If You Already Like Black Flag 12 Jun 2004
By J. McQueen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
(See above.)

The reason is that this album contains the most famous songs from the legendary punk group -- Black Flag as sung by its numerous lead singers, except for Henry Rollins.
First is Keith Morris, who went on to form the Circle Jerks and was Black Flag's first and best lead singer. Then the album goes on with Dez and Chavo singing.
Great album, but don't...let me repeat --- DON'T buy this album expecting to hear Henry Rollins, because you won't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Before And After 19 May 2004
By As Usual - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's hard for me to compare (early)Black Flag albums to each other because they all serve their own purpose. I mean, as far as having a prevailing theme and feel, "Damaged" was the best but to me Keith Morris was the best singer. Need an example? Compare "Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie." Henry's version was good. The actual intrumentals were better, but Keith's version is fantastic. This guy sings like a lunatic. In another song, "I Don't Care," he's laughing, jumbling words, starting too late...I don't know if this was drunkness or genious but this guy's amazing. His version of "Depression" is better too. The rest of this album covers Dez and Chavo, so in all fairness, if you prefer those guys, they've got unrealeased versions of songs they sing. I'm not exactly a fan of them, but everybody's different. Like "The First Four Years," this is a good way to learn the history before "Damaged." A definite must-get.

This is what punk is all about. True old school. I highly recommend this album to people who like old school punk, but don't care for Rollins.
