Pure and simple, The Blasters create American Music, accessible, energetic rock 'n' roll, performed live in Philly, seamlessly blending r&b, punk rock, rockabilly, boogie woogie and rock 'n' roll. Their live performances gained them a rabid fan base with a frenetic energy and outstanding musicianship and they were stalwarts in the early 80s L.A. punk scene, performing with artists including Black Flag, The Cramps, X and numerous others. Their music was integrated into a variety of feature films ("From Dusk To Dawn", "Streets of Fire" and "Bull Durham") and TV ("Mami Vice", "Six Feet Under" and "Billions") and was featured in Gran Turismo Auto 4. From 1978 to 1995, Philadelphia's Chestnut Cabaret was a destination for a Who's Who of rock icons. Everyone from Nirvana to ELP, the Ramones to Judy Collins, Warren Zevon to John Lee Hooker and countless others rocked the house. This incredible live recording of their July 19, 1986 performance at the Chestnut Cabaret was taken directly off the soundboard so the sound quality is exceptional. It's also one of the last recordings including guitarist Hollywood Fats who died less than 5 months after this performance.

the Blasters displayed a wide-ranging musical styles [and] were a supremely tight and tactful band with enough fire, smarts, and passion for two or three groups
—Mark Deming, AllMusic
In my mind, they were a great band that not enough people found out about. Bill Bateman is one of the best drummers there is, and then of course, there are the Alvin brothers. A lot of talent for one band
Their tunes are catchy and make your toes tap and your butt shake
—John Garcia III, Amazon
