Extra's: The best extra was a series of bonus footage that lasted 29.5 minutes. Some of the scenes were more complete than others but this was a great extra compared to earlier releases in the series. There was also a cumshot recap and photogallery to fill things out.
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as originally shot for each scene in this compilation. The levels of grain and lighting varied a bit more than I prefer but considering the low budget nature of the scenes and the age of some of them, it looked okay. The audio was presented in monaural English and suffered from some wind noise and varying levels but overall was also okay for the type of gonzo production this was.

Body of Review: Lexington Steele is one of the seven wonders of the porn world and has been for quite some time. He has been called many things over the years and has had to deal with a number of setbacks but he has always been in great demand for his services. One of the companies where he worked at for dozens of movies was Anabolic, the breeding ground for such production companies as Red Light District, Platinum X Pictures and many others (when their principles left Anabolic to form more performer-friendly deals). In an attempt to provide fans with a compilation of scenes with the powerful Lexington Steele, the company has started a series of releases focusing on his better scenes with them and the latest one is The Black Bastard 8. Fans of Lex's will definitely want to check this one out as the scenes were all very well done and showed this tower of power at his best. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast:
Scene One: World Sex Tour 23: D-Christopher Alexander: 2000: Nicole, an English redhead, Lexington, and silly Omar, had a scene in England as Lex toured the world. She was in her seventh scene, claiming to have 34DD breasts and being 24 years old (if so, she had a hard life). She was loud and didn't do a lot of oral to these gentlemen before they took turns boning her. Her contrasting skin (hers was milky white and their was very dark) will work for some of you but her skills were limited when the screwing began. Though she did straight and anal, I never thought she was into if for more than the money. The DP even looked like it was hurting her and all her screaming seemed fake. It ended when they jerked off to her face.
Scene Two: Up Your Ass 18: D-Mike John and Christopher Alexander: 2001: Lexington started off the scene by congratulating the Lakers, naming several of the players, for winning some series or other as Miko climbed on him and made advances. I don't know about the rest of you but when a gal wants some loving, I forget all about sports and tend to the matters at hand. After some brief oral, she rode him hard and wet in her pussy and ass, tasting it a few times along the way. Fans of ATM should note that his penis went inside her far enough that she probably could taste her last meal and seemed to enjoy his attentions. While he didn't go balls deep inside her, he drove it far enough that she looked to be stretching her limits a lot. It ended when he jerked off onto her chest.
Scene Three: Balls Deep 7: D-Lexington Steele: 2003: Melanie, a brunette with a curvy body and perfect ass, wore a fetish outfit including chains and leather as she walked around the house. She showed off her ample sample and then started masturbating until Lexington joined her for a wild scene. There was oral and straight sex but also a hot anal scene that showed why she has been such a favorite of interracial fans for so long. She was vocal and seemed to enjoy the chemistry and heat the two generated, making this the best scene of the bunch. Whew!
Scene Four: Initiations 10: D-Lexington Steele: 2002: Diamond, a 19 year old Black gal, pondered whether or not to let Lexington screw her. He then gave her some space to oil up her curvy body and she decided to go for it. She blew him like a beginner and he massaged her ass with the oil all over it before boning her pussy. She rode him pretty hard this time, doing a better job than most gals do, but never did anal. It wasn't a bad scene but it also wasn't the best of the bunch if you want to see anal sex. It ended when he came on her abdomen.
Scene Five: Nasty Nymphos 22: D-Christopher Alexander: 1998: Allison, a 25 year old blonde from Houston, Texas (I think she used to dance in some local clubs), had a scene on a couch with Lexington after a short interview. She gave a fair blowjob but probably the weakest here before he started pounding her pussy in several positions. She seemed into it even if she was unable to take it all the way in. Just when the scene appeared to be all over, there was a bit of interview and she started doing her first on-camera anal. He took it slowly since he didn't want to hurt her but the tempo increased as the scene progressed. She took a facial from the pile driver position.
Scene Six: World Sex Tour 19: D-Christopher Alexander: 1999: Mary, a 19 year old European brunette that liked her hairy bush, resisted the charms of both Vince and Lexington, giving them attitude when they tried to clean her up a bit. Once the sex started, she was okay but her skills weren't all that if you catch my drift. She blew them and screwed them, using her pussy and ass as they were intended to be used. I didn't like the multitude of blemishes on her ass but she took the DP with ease so fans may not care. They ended by dropping loads into her mouth and she skillfully played their skin flutes with grace, if not talent.
Summary: If you enjoyed Volume 4,Volume 7, and Volume 6, you'll think this one is worth at least a rating of Recommended. The gals varied a lot more here, as did the technical qualities, but it was hard to deny that when things clicked this time, they were burning hot. Lexington is now releasing porn for some other company with his own label but you can bet that scenes such as these contributed to his popularity over the years.
