The Deep Six compilation was released March 1986 (catalog# CZ001). It was the very first release by C/Z Records, a few months before the release of Sub Pop 100 from Sub Pop. It was also arguably the second record to influence the later "Seattle sound" that would be known worldwide as grunge (the first being Green River's debut EP Come on Down).[citation needed] The album was reissued as a joint C/Z Records/A&M Records release on April 6, 1994 (catalog # 6971 2400 2)
