According to a new band update, "the idea for this compilation CD was born years ago as we received different requests from fans and friends to put all vinyl releases together at one CD. Not only because the EPs were hard to get or sold out, also because record-players run off with time. Well, this CD will contain all EP`s released on vinyl, including 32 tracks with two unreleased tracks."
