This bundle includes the three titles in the Bad Brains Punk Note series (Bad Brains, Rock For Light, Quickness), in addition to a Bad Brains zine and tote bag.

The artwork is a nod to Reid Miles and Francis Wolff, and their amazing work at the Blue Note label.
Bad Brains is the self-titled debut studio album recorded by American hardcore punk/reggae band Bad Brains. Recorded in 1981 and released on (then) cassette-only label ROIR on February 5, 1982, many fans refer to it as "The Yellow Tape" because of its yellow packaging. Though Bad Brains had recorded the 16 song Black Dots album in 1979 and the 5-song Omega Sessions EP in 1980, the ROIR cassette was the band's first release of anything longer than a single.
In coordination with the band, Org Music has overseen the restoration and remastering of the iconic Bad Brains’ recordings. The audio was mastered by Dave Gardner at Infrasonic Mastering and pressed at Furnace Record Pressing.
This “Punk Note” edition comes with alternate packaging artwork from designer John Yates (Stealworks).

Rock For Light (Punk Note Edition) LP
“Rock for Light” is the second full-length album by Bad Brains, released in 1983. It was produced by Ric Ocasek of The Cars. We’re proud to present the original mix of the album, for the first time in decades, as the band originally intended. Most fans will be more familiar with the 1991 reissue, which was remixed by Ocasek and bass player Darryl Jenifer. That version used an altered track order, significantly different mixes and a speed increase of the master which results in a raising of the pitch by one-half step. The audio has been remastered by Dave Gardner at Infrasonic Mastering in Los Angeles. This “Punk Note” edition comes with alternate packaging artwork from designer John Yates (Stealworks). The artwork is a nod to Reid Miles and Francis Wol , and their amazing work at the Blue Note label.
