For the first time available on CD! Double CD housed in a deluxe 6-panel digipack with 16 page booklet. The roots of one of the most respected and influential New York Hardcore founders.. the CRUMBSUCKERS!! If you're looking for the most exhaustive, high quality retrospective of their pre-"Life of dreams" recordings, you'll find a true jewel in this massive anthology. 69 songs including all their Demos (the legendary "Crumbsucker cave" demo 1983, "Charge of the light brigade" Demo 1985 and two unreleased tapes 1983-1984) + a bonus CD with 3 great sounding live sets 1984-85 at CBGB's... one opening for the Cro-Mags! This collection shows the band's natural evolution from basic, no frills early '80s Hardcore to the mad thrashing assault that made "Life of dreams" and "B.O.M.B." two unforgettable lessons of true NYHC crossovered with technical and well delivered Metal. All the stuff included here features their former singer David Brady, and displays embryonic versions of all those anthems that were later re-recorded on their debut masterpiece + a lot of unreleased tracks! As usual all the stuff here has been mastered from 1st generation tapes with extreme care and passion by the Hand of Doom @ Toxic Basement studio, a real guarantee of quality and passion. Digipack sleeve and booklet include rare photos, flyers and liner notes + exclusive artwork by Lucas Kalina.. same contents as the previously released vinyl version.
