Warzone - Rarities 1984-1986
Some more classic NYHC rarities. First is the 1984 demo with Tommy Rat (Trip 6, Psychos, Rejuvenate) on vocals. The sound quality on the first track is a bit rough, but it's like this on all versions i've heard, including the recent bootleg demos LP. After that the quality is really good, considering this is 25 years old, and this is most likely the loudest and cleanest rip of this demo you'll find. Next is the Street Kids demo, recorded live at Some Records. This one has all the classic Warzone songs, and in my opinion is much better than the records these songs were released on. Once again the quality is great, and probably the best you'll find. Ending the collection is a dozen tracks from Skinhead Youth, the pre-Warzone band with Raybeez on vocals, recorded live in 1984 at CBGB. A few of these tracks were later reworked into Warzone songs, and others you'll only hear in this live set. Enjoy.
