Various ‎– Back To The 80's

Originally released in 1996 as a 4CD box and supporting the Dutch radio show "Back To The 80's" on Radio Veronica.

In 2004 Sony re-released part of the series, but now as 2CD boxes with new artwork. As a result, the volume numbering does not match the original series.

The discs of the reissues are exactly the same as the discs of the original series. No remastering has been done.
