Title: “Rock ‘N Roll” (Deluxe Edition)
Label: Sanctuary Records
Release Date: 11/16/2010
Genre: Hard Rock/Heavy Metal
In 2006, Sanctuary Records was celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the band Motorhead by re-issuing and remastering their back catalog. The double CD sets come with the original album in a sonically upgraded form and a second CD that is loaded with bonus and unreleased tracks. When these editions first came out in 2006 they featured a slipcase cardboard sleeve while a later re-issue found a massive double foldout packaging with a clear sleeve keeping it in place.
