Text from HIGH ROLLER records website:

Slipcase, 20page booklet, 5 bonus tracks.

Original studio reel transfer by Eroc. Original cassette and vinyl transfer, audio restoration and mastering by Patrick W. Engel at TEMPLE OF DISHARMONY in August 2019. Cutting by SST Germany on Neumann machines for optimal quality on all levels... Absolute NWOBHM insiders should use the name Random Black before have heard. Your song "Orphelia" was heard on the Ebony compilation "Metal Warriors". But that wasn't all: After a demo in 1981, Random Black met local musician and songwriter Mark Kirkman, who is known as the "Fastest guitarist in Southend" hurried ahead. The entry of Kirkman gave Random Block new motivation. A second demo was recorded (directed by Procol Harums Matthew Fisher) and contact was made with Ebony Records in Hull. But the people carousel at Random Black was turning faster and faster, so that by 1984 the end was in sight. However, they met one last time to preserve the best songs in the band's repertoire for posterity. These recordings plus the two demos and the song "Orphelia" form the heart of the current exhibition. There is also material that Kirkman reworked together with former Bitches Sin singer Tony Tomkinson. The exit of Kirkman meant the end of Random Black. A little later he teamed up with the former Crucifixion members Chris Mann and Pete Morgan to found Redline.
