In addition to dozens of unheard studio tracks and live recordings, all CD releases are equipped with extended booklets featuring rare photos and, single covers, backstage passes and additional liner notes, while five of the eight albums include a DVD with live concert footage, TV performances and interviews from the period.

In addition to “Blackout”, the German rockers also reissued expanded versions of 1977’s “Taken By Force”, “Tokyo Tapes” (1978), 1979’s “Lovedrive”, “Animal Magnetism” (1980), 1984’s “Love At First Sting”, “Savage Amusement” (1998) and 1985’s “World Wide Live.”
