Deep Six (album)

Last updated on 21 May 2017

Deep Six is a compilation album featuring early recordings from several Seattle-based rock bands, originally released in March 1986 (catalog# CZ001). It was the very first release by C/Z Records, preceding by a few months the release of Sub Pop's Sub Pop 100. It is often cited as one of the two earliest records to showcase the "Seattle sound" that would later gain worldwide popularity as grunge (the other being Green River's debut EP Come on Down). The album was reissued as a joint C/Z Records/A&M Records release on April 6, 1994 (catalog # 6971 2400 2).
