I'm getting dizzy just by reading the track-list. And I think most others will also quit before reching CD 3. The unreleased material is not marked in any way. So, I assume it's a collection of what's available on FTD, Venus, the old bootleg LPs, the radio spots used by Tunzi before and a radio show circulating in some forums.

The artwork looks really stunning. But I guess the material on this release is taken from other import and/or FTD cd's? On ebay I saw this for € 70,00 not too expensive, but if there's nothing new it really is. Does anybody know?
