Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered two-fer containing a pair of albums from the New York-based Rock 'n' Roll punks: Manifest Destiny and Blood Brothers. The Dictators formed in 1974 and were one of the finest Proto Punk bands to come out of the city. They played loud, fast Rock 'n' Roll influenced by the British invasion and the sonic onslaught of The Who. Manifest Destiny was the band's second album, released after the band were signed to Elektra. Blood Brothers, their third followed in 1978 after a successful UK tour and is ninety percent live and loud.

Producers Sandy Pearlman and Murray Krugman saw the nascent Blue Oyster Cult sound in The Dictators' voice and made "Manifest Destiny" parallel the early BOC discs. Thick, sludgy guitars, vocals back in the mix and heavy on the reverb. As a result, I really can't give this 5 stars due to the muddy production, but at the same time, this was the album that made me a Dictators fan for life! Why the Dic's haven't been put on the pantheon they deserve is beyond me, but with songs like "Science Gone Too Far" and their blistering cover of The Stooges' "Search And Destroy," they proved they could blast as well as their CBGB contemporaries of the period. And they were not without a sense of humor; just check out the opening lines of "Hey Boys" or Handsome Dick's monologue on "Disease." "Manifest Destiny" is a brilliant artifact of an era in American Music. They followed it up with their masterpiece, "Bloodbrothers," and Sony has been kind enough to leave "Go Girl Crazy!" in print. My advice is get 'em all now and that includes the recent "DFFD" because it still smokes the competition.

Then there's "Bloodbrothers": The Dictators make sure you know exactly what you're in for as soon as the music starts..."Faster And Louder!" This was the most forward of the Dic's three original albums and the closest they came to a mainstream sound. That being if you could call anything The Dictators did "mainstream." Their's was a take no prisoners attitude, with everything about "Bloodbrothers" being so sorely missing in music at the time of its release. In 1978, Punk was just beginning to come into its own and the whole CBGB's crowd was setting their sights on world domination.

That may have been to The Dictators' detriment.

What can I say more.... one of the legends of punk beginnings, a mith of the first generation of crazy rebels of the 70ies, two classic albuns in one, each track a punch in the face, a brick in the stomach, the basic raw rock in the MC5 style! You listen and you keep sure that they ARE ahead of their time, breaking our bones and exploding our years.

Bloodbrothers is a great rock n roll album. But there is a major problem with this CD. For some reason, the producers of this CD put breaks in between the songs, so they no longer flow into each other. At the end of Baby Let's Twist, you get the piano intro and beginning of No Tomorrow, but then the music stops. There is a moment of silence. Then No Tomorrow starts up again. Whoever produced this CD in my opinion ruined it. If you want Bloodbrothers, I suggest you buy this release: Bloodbrothers.

...but my husband is and he enjoys this product. As long as he doesn't play it too loud I'm okay with it.
