AllMusic Review by

The Rarities collects a number of demos, outtakes, and previously unreleased tracks recorded by Red Alert at various points in their career. The first 12 dates from the group's initial incarnation; these include a compilation contribution, a four-song demo for their debut album We've Got the Power, and a seven-song demo designed to secure a new recording contract in the wake of the No Future label's demise. The last ten stem from Red Alert's late-'80s re-formation; this material includes another compilation-only track, four versions of songs included on the Blood, Sweat 'n' Beers album, covers of "If the Kids Are United" (Sham 69) and "England" (Angelic Upstarts) that were recorded especially for this collection, and a few previously unreleased songs.
