Black 47: Bittersweet 16

Bittersweet 16 is not so much a best of Black 47 but instead a chronological history of B47 starting with their first recording back in 1990 (the cassette only ‘Home of the Brave’) and with one song from each subsequent year through to the present – rarities, previously unreleased and alternative versions of live favorites from their now deleted major label releases. It’s been a while since I’ve listened to B47 and this is a great reminder to me how good this band really is and how well the songs have stood the test of time (16 years later and ‘Home of the Brave’ a song about illegal immigration and George Bush seems very current) . Definitely something for both the old and new fan here.
