The CD-cover is a original drawing made by Jim Fitzpatrick 1980, a cover that never was used... Inside the booklet there are lots of glossy promotional photos of the band (you've seen them all before apart from 2 photos of Phil taken by Jörgen Holmstedt). Just the way we remember them. The photos are put cronologically so that one easily can figure out who played with who and when. Every song has it's history and Jörgen Holmstedt gives a short background on every tune - very interesting. Both for a newbie on Thin Lizzy and a diehard fan. For example, "The Boys Are back In Town" almost didn't make it to the album ("Jailbreak") and the original title was "GI Joe's Back In Town"...

The back of the CD-booklet has a message from Phil, a message written for the Swedish Supporters Club. It's a dedication to Sweden and for the first time in a very very long time I'm proud to be Swedish :-)

Now, apart from the message from Phil, everything's in Swedish. The collection may be released in other parts of Europe, but then without the bonus-CD and most likely not with the drawing made by Jim Fitzpatrick.

Thanks for the info, Ozzie.
