Because I liked the cover art of this release so much I decided to buy a copy of this classic. Didn’t want to go for the original because I had the price in mind. Also in the mind was the fact that I knew this one was recently reissued on Strength Records. So I searched eBay and found a copy of the limited first press color of this reissue. Shipping was from Germany so that was reasonable also. All these facts made me decide to buy it.
|reissue of Cause For Alarm by Strength Records (100 copies on splatter vinyl from first press)|
As I already mentioned this artwork is done by Sean Taggart in 1985. He also did the design for numerous flyers according to Wikipedia.
You can still buy the second press of this reissue. This time it comes in a high gloss laminated cover. That will do that artwork more justice I think. You can also use this high gloss laminated cover to display in a glass closet or frame it to hang on your wall or something. Makes me want to pre-order it right away. But having two pressings of a reissue would be over the top…
