Survival Sampler SR-1A Sound Rations. For Emergency. For Survival.

US: Warner Bros. Records, 1984. Audio cassette sealed inside a tin tab can, with printed label pasted on.

The lavishly produced cassette version of this compilation album made to introduce American audiences to British and Austrialian new wave and synthpop bands (and King Crimson), in a substantially different format from the LP version. One of the most lavishly produced attempts by a major label to mimic some of the aesthetic of the new wave and industrial underground.

With tracks by The Smiths, The Church, China Crisis, Scritti Politto, Carmel, King Crimson, Aztec Camera, The Cure, The Bluebells, Modern English, The Assembly, and Depeche Mode.

This copy still sealed. Top edge dusty, else VG+, with the label bright. Item #25839
