Serving a prison sentence for marijuana possession did not stop Bad Brains singer H.R. from recording the vocals to "Sacred Love" - a song about keeping a relationship alive between a prisoner and his girlfriend on the outside. As Bad Brains manager, Anthony Countey, recounted, "He'd gotten to be one of the guys that gets to sweep up, and he got to be near the payphone, when nobody else was around." Added guitarist Dr. Know, "Ron [St. Germain, producer] had him unscrew the mouthpiece and hold it up like a microphone, and hold the headset part, so it wouldn't get feedback." The end result was one of the Brains' most rockin' love songs.
