4 old 7”s on a 12”

Last week, I went on a nice road trip, hitting up record stores and a museum in the south of the Netherlands. I came home with a nice box filled with goodies. One of them is this early pressing of the 4 7”s on a 12”, containing 4 out of the 6 earliest Dischord releases. No need to introduce the bands or the records. The LP came with the large lyric sheet and a cool mail order sheet.

State of Alert is high on my playlist this week. I am still not sure if I like the demo more or the 7″.

I was looking for more State Of Alert and I bought this 7″ without seeing a decent picture, the seller told me it would be grey/brown vinyl. What color would you call it?

The quest for green is on

Two weeks ago, I wanted to play some State Of Alert, so I grabbed the single and put it on. While playing the single, I grabbed my other copy to check out the lyric sheet and I noticed that, that copy was also a second press. 

I always assumed I had a second and third press, turns out I owned two second presses. Not sure how this has happened. I did found a dirt cheap copy once and bought it without making any further inquerements, probably the auction didnt had any decent pictures and expected it to be 3rd press and I didn’t check it thoroughly and put it away. 

Anyhow, when I noticed the mistake, the hunt was on for a copy. Like a miracle a good looking copy showed up within days, so I went for it. Now the hunt is on for a copy on green vinyl.

…State Of Alert is what I think about when I read S.O.A.

I always thought this 7″ was only released on purple vinyl but if you search this blog you will find out I found several other colors too. Today I got a black vinyl copy, but the sleeve is interesting too, it is beige or light yellow instead of white as all other copies are.

I don’t think I have to tell about State Of Alert or how good there are. Also when you speak Dutch, you will think of totally different things when you read S.O.A.
