This is kinda rad, because something tells me this is a hard live record to find…not that I dig live records very much at all.
Agnostic Front’s seminal 1989 live release Live At CBGB will be reissued again, this time by Bridge Nine on July 17. I do believe there was a 25 year anniversary edition released not that long ago.
The updated version will have an embossed cover with the original art. It will be pressed on limited edition red, white and blue striped vinyl with other color options also available.
“With this year being our 30 year anniversary as a band with myself singing I wanted to play a special show here and there so I came up with the idea of playing our classic Live At CBGB set,” says Agnostic Front’s Roger Miret.
“This was the set front to back from our legendary live recording released in 1989. That was a magical time for the band and hardcore was thriving at it’s best in 1988 when it was recorded.
“As an honorable family member with the Bridge Nine crew, I knew that the label should be home to this special re-release as much as CBGB was home to Agnostic Front. We are making this re-release very special for the record collector in a red, white and blue color and our timeless original cover embossed to add that punch it held back in 1989 as intense today in 2012! Along with this special re-release we are doing a handful of special shows in the U.S. to coordinate with the release.”
