Cause For Alarm- s/t 7" (Victory)
Reissue, 2012
Black Vinyl /??

Most would agree that New York's Cause For Alarm and their first EP from 1983 were massively influential as far as founding NYHC goes. This record easily stands up to and alongside classics like "United Blood", "Thou Shalt Not Kill" and "Loud And Clear". I feel that history probably hasn't been as kind to this record as the others mentioned though and I'm not sure why. Though with that said, original copies do sell in the hundreds like those others, so maybe I'm just not paying enough attention?
Details are vague, but from what I can tell, this is a 2012 reissue of the bands original self released debut 7". Handled by Victory Records here, they've reissued it a couple times since 1994. A few differing factors make up this version, most obviously the bright yellow sleeve and an added track ("Time Will Tell") that was originally released on a compilation.
