Various Artists - Yes LA EP
(31079)

In the late '70s, Dangerhouse Records--that most legendary of punk rock labels--released a handful of indispensable 7-inches and two 12-inches: records that everyone knows, worships and collects. One of the 12-inches was Black Randy's Pass the Dust, I Think I'm Bowie, and the other, released in 1979, was the one-sided, six-song, silkscreened picture EP, Yes LA.

The title was a take-off on the seminal No Wave compilation album released a year earlier, No New York, and the Dangerhouse kids even went so far as to include the disclaimer "Not produced by Brian Eno" on the record. The original was limited to 2,000 copies, every one screened by hand and packaged in a clear bag with a white cardboard backing (read about them here, here and here). Frontier (with the help of the meticulous Cliff and company at The Factory) has taken great pains to reproduce every detail of the original, from the ink to the bag and cardboard, right down to custom-cut mylar seals for the flap (check out these photos of the "making-of"). Still, there are a couple of difference, but we'll let you discover them for yourself.

34 years out-of-print, originals of Yes LA have sold for $250 and up. Now you can get your own copy of this fabled LA punk classic and put the gougers out of business!

Fourteen 7" singles, each in a reproduction of the original sleeves. Limited to a one-time pressing of 1,000 copies. Includes a full-color, 36-page booklet. The size is approx. 19 x 19 x 6 inches.

Dangerhouse was one of the first independent labels to document the burgeoning West Coast punk rock scene of the late '70s. Although short-lived, its work provided a vital outlet for the bands and other participants and set a template for many to follow.

Includes an extensive 36-page booklet featuring an interview with Dangerhouse founder David Brown, many unseen photos of all the bands and memorabilia.

Also available as a two-CD box set that includes the 36-page booklet that comes with the 7" box plus another booklet reproducing the artwork of all 14 sleeves.
