Though Go Girl Crazy is often considered the essential album in The Dictators' '70s catalog, Bloodbrothers is the one hardcore Dictators fans play the most. The Dictators were considered one of New York City's premier rock 'n' roll bands, and on a good night they epitomized all that was essential to the spirit of the music in the same way The Clash symbolized the same from the U.K. "Faster and Louder" adds a guest backing vocal from fellow East Coast rocker Bruce Springsteen, but it's best known as a live favorite (along with "Baby Let's Twist" and "No Tomorrow/The Minnesota Strip," which features Ross "The Boss" Friedman on definitive lead guitar). "Stay with Me" and "Borneo Jimmy" show Andy Shernoff at the top of his songwriting game. The cover of The Flamin' Groovies' "Slow Death" further aligns The Dictators with the rock 'n' roll underground, just as their cover of The Stooges' "Search and Destroy" did on Manifest Destiny. There isn't a bad cut here, and many are among the greatest rock 'n' roll of any era.
