This box was printed in USA in 1992 by Roadrunner. It is a cardboard box slip case
that includes the albums
Motorhead, Overkill, Bomber, AOS, NSTH and a compilation called Meltdown. It also includes a booklet. The front sleeve
of the box has a black and white picture of Lemmy, Eddie and Philthy from the Overkill days.
A seller in Canada claimed that it was
only issued as a promo box but that was probably just for Canada. But my guess is it was sold in the regular shops
also in Canada. In USA it was sold in the shops. Some copies have
a drill hole through the barcode of the box and the six jewel cases as well. I donīt know if this box is a later
release than the CDs themselves or if they were released at the same time. The problem is there is no year
printed on the sleeves or the discs of the CDs but I think they were released already in 1991 considering that is
the year that is printed on the Another Perfect Day CD in the Revisited series. Also the Castle Classics UK
releases were issued in 1991 and the Roadracer Revisited are the US version of those releases.
Or maybe even the box was earlier?
The cat no, RRD 9132, is actually lower than the no of the CDs (9131, 9226, 9227, 9228, 9229 and 9357). Another
funny thing is that all the CDs were released by Roadracer Revisited except for the compilation Meltdown that
I think was specially made to be included in this box. Meltdown, just like the box has Roadrunner
Revisited printed on them.
