Regarded as one of the pioneers of Hardcore Punk, Bad Brains first formed in the mid-70s and quickly developed a very fast and intense punk-rock sound, which was both musically complex and strongly defined. They influenced rock giants like the Beastie Boys and were ranked in VH1s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.

MVD Audio, the company responsible for both releases, must have realized the mistake they made with the the release of "Live at CBGB 1982" on CD because, four years later, they released this special vinyl edition. Not to be confused with the CD release, this limited edition vinyl release uses the audio recordings from the DVD. The result: a much cleaner, smoother, and better-sounding "Live at CBGB 1982." Five songs, however, were dropped from the mix: "Big Takeover," "I," "Jah the Conqueror," "Supertouch/S***fit," and "All Rise to Meet Jah." Also, the order of songs has changed from the initial CD release, though why this was done is a mystery to me.
All in all, this is a far superior version of "Live at CBGB 1982" than its predecessor on CD. Whether or not MVD Audio will decide to re-release this version of the festival on CD to replace the previous edition is highly doubtful (like I said, they didn't do a digital version and most likely won't), so be sure to pick up a copy when and wherever you can. Only 1,000 copies were made, so they're not joking when they say it's limited edition! This is an absolute must-have for every Bad Brains fan!
