03. Still A Virginian
04. Ruin It
05. Thousand Years
06. Schizoid

S.O.A./Extorts - demos + Live 1980

S.O.A. started as the Extorts with Lyle Preslar on vocals. When Lyle quit to play guitar for Minor Threat Henry Rollins was added on vocals and they changed their name to S.O.A. The sound quality on the demos is good. Source 2 of the S.O.A. demo  has the better sound quality. From it Disease and Stepping Stone are the versions that appear on the Flex Your Head compilation album. The live show was recorded from the audience and has good sound.
