Black 47 Gig Tapes (23 hours) login required

Hear sample1 sample2 sample3 Here is my collection of Black 47 gig tapes from 1989-90. I've simply burned each side of each cassette to mp3. Reading through the Index Page and subsequent links gives an overview of the band's growth during that first year.

Jackie Faulk Dotson: Ok kids, here it is in all of it's glory. A link to the Mp3s for Black 47's first ever appearance on the radio, on Vin Scelsa's Idiot's Delight 92.3 WXRK in NYC. I was an avid listener of this program, and in fact this is how I learned about Black 47 (on July 7, 1991 to be exact, but who is keeping track). Anyway, the broadcast aired live on September 29, 1991.
