The Best of Brought To Life - 168

1. THE BAD BRAINS - 'The Regulator' - ROIR cassette - USA - 1982
Well, it's about time we revisited one of the greatest albums ever recorded, so if this doesn't get you rushing out to buy the CD, nothing will.
2. BAD RELIGION - 'Yesterday' - Epitaph 12" - USA - 1985
The lead track from the 'Back To The Known' E.P. which was a welcome return to form at the time. Available on the '80-'85 CD.
3. THE GOVERNMENT - 'Hemingway Hated Disco Music' - Self-released 7" - Canada - 1979
A lot of later Government releases could be considered 'anti-music', but this, their first release was a real quirky gem. The excellent DVD that will give you the whole story can be bought here.
