This CD issue was released in the USA through Roadracer´s revisited series in
1990-11-13 (polish website, also the discography in the Stone Dead Forever box by Mick Stevenson lists
1990 as the release year) with the information on the cover about the bonus tracks for some reason changed
to “Including 5 killer bonus tracks!”. Nowhere on the disc is the information that it was released in 1990,
be in 1991 or even 1992. On the back there is a barcode in the top right corner, 0 16861-9357-2 6,
and a Roadracer
Revisited logo and Stop the Madness logo in the lower right corner. The disc is black with two skulls in
has an AAD logo, a compact disc logo and the Roadracer Revisited logo.
The inlay has the lyrics for the song Motorhead and liner notes by Mike Gitter, Metal Mania. There is also an
add for ordering t-shirts and hats from Blue Grape Merchandise. The back of the inlay is red with song titles
The USA RRD 9357 was included in the CD box “All The Aces” (RRD 9132) that was released in USA 1992.
There is also a Record Club edition that was released in
Canada. According to
the polish website motorhead.rockmetal.art.pl there is a version of the Roadracer cd with catalogue number
168 619 357-2, that is the same number that is in the barcode
(this is also listed in the Stone Dead Forever discography).
Are they referring to the Canadian club version?
There are copies with drill
Mike Coleman informed me in August 2009 about a copy he had that showed some small differences. This is
how he describes it: "This copy is identical in barcode and catalogue numbers with only a slight change
on the disc itself, it actually says "made in usa", and includes mysteriously
the following number 'DIDY 009707', and has 'CRC'
all this is VERY small, and hardly noticeable. That number only appears on the disc itself
the ONLY other difference is that on the back cover 'CRC' appears over the 'stop the madness'.
Maybe CRC could stand for "Canadian Record Club" and maybe this indicates a USA press of the
Canadian Club version?".
