ok i just got this krokus compilation today from oz, i have no evidence but this record appears to be a promo release for a tour that either took place or was supposed to take place in nz and australia back in 1984 but i once again dont know if the tour ever happened, anyway VERY VERY UNIQUE and hard to find krokus compilation that focuses on the first 3 records that features marc storache on vocals, all tracks on this lp where released between 1980 and 1982, i have very obscure krokus records that are more prog or psyche a bit from 1976 through 1978 but in 1980 when marc joined that seemed to be the year the band declared themselves a heavy metal band from switzerland and by god at that time they where the best hard rockers out of that country, anyway this very rare australian compilation showcases some of the best krokus songs from the early metal years and honestly THESE SONGS WHERE THE BEST KROKUS EVER DID!!!! things started to change a bit with headhunter in 1983 but that was a good record NOT GREAT like the first 3 with marc, anyway this comes in a rather thin sleeve and has assorted photos of the band from the 1980 to 82 era and the lp itself is rather thick for 1984 it feels more like a late 60s pressing then it does a mid 80s, anyway this compilation does not come easy especially in great condition, im very happy to have this in vg+ condition as it took me 18 months to locate this...... nice glossy sleeve to
