Rate this:
This video features live footage of the hardcore punk/reggae group Bad Brains playing a Hardcore Festival at the historic New York City club CBGB over three famous nights, beginning on Christmas Eve of 1982. The show features the best of these three nights, culled from over four hours of footage. Several tracks from the first three Bad Brains albums - Black Dots, Bad Brains, and Rock for Light - are featured. The album also contains previously unreleased material, such as the reggae tunes "King of Glory" and "I And I Rasta." Images of the enraptured, frenetic crowd add context to the wildness of the music. Their live performances were legendary, their visual recordings were impossible to find. Now, for the first time on video, that powerful performance is revisited in extraordinary fashion - the embodiment of an exhilarating time and place, when Bad Brains were just reaching their peak.
