Second Wind

What a great LP this is. Someone was nice enough to hook me up with a copy of this record that I'd been trying to track down again (hmmm, I wonder why- see previous post) and it's as good as I remember. Members of Second Wind were previously in bands such as Minor Threat, Youth Brigade (DC), Double O, the Untouchables and plenty more but I don't recall this record getting much traction here in the midwest. It was released in 1984 on the R & B label, one that I'm not that familiar with, and contains 9 tracks- all solid.

These are some great tracks. I'd never even heard of these guys and I love DC hardcore. Do they have any other releases?

This is the only release I know of, although I've heard that there is a demo. Couldn't tell you if it has any songs that aren't on here or if it just contains rougher versions of these.

R&B Records was run by Rich Moore and Bert Queiroz (hence, the R & B). They also released the first Gray Matter record (which Dischord reissued).

i loved this record a lot when it came out. one of the cool LV punker grrrls bought it for me for my 16th birthday present. a pivotal and important year for any american boy (or grrrl). 'its all expected'. man... the first emo song. but it was all double o anyway.... i saw them a year and a half later on the southside of bethlehem.

mp3 from this show is here:

Thanks for posting this hard to find lost gem. I was in a band that opened for them in Harrisburg, PA, back in '84. They were excellent and also truly nice folks.

I can't seem to get this to play...need a certain version of windows or real player of something?...love this record, but can't find the actual vinyl...no one sounds as much like Minor Threat except Minor Threat.
