The Essential releases of Orgasmatron, Rīn`R and NSAA were made a year later
than the Bronze re-issues (Overkill, Bomber, AOS, NSTH, Iron Fist, APD and No Remorse). Otherwise they were very similar in design and packing.
Orgasmatron got the live
B-sides for bonus tracks and an interesting alternative version of the Claw.
The discs were slightly
modified. They had the Motorhead logo in a bigger size and the title was also slightly bigger and the logos
for Essential, Compact disc, LC number were put at the bottom.
Some copies had the silver sticker on the
front of jewel case ("Remastered from original master tapes, plus bonus tracks, faithfully restored
artwork"). There is also another version of the disc
with just small differences; the logos at the bottom are in a different order and the small print around
the disc is slighly longer.
In March a seller, moosesnugglz, offered a copy with Virgin promo sticker and on the back it also had a round "promo, not for sale" sticker. My guess is
he happened to have some promo stickers he stuck to a Motorhead cd...
