The Eastgate Music Shop about the CD release"Booster supposed to be a musical side reflection -- a hidden TD landmark not aimed for a TD mainstream success. But sometimes things were turned upside down. The whole cup disc idea which now became a short note musical diary format plus some extras released on Booster provoked such an enthusiastic reaction that we couldn't refuse to give you Booster II -- here it is. Call it 'Booster 2' or like veggie Ed named it 'Biophysiological Soul Vitamines'... If that isn't strange enough he did threatening all of us with producing a series Booster 1 to Booster 10!! No comment about that guy from our side! :-)
PS: Booster II contains 8 so far unreleased tracks: totally new ones or re-recorded ones -- you will be surprised!"


Regarding the initial Eastgate CD release, neither CD nor the paper inserts show any order number or barcode, but the number given below is the order number the Eastgate Music Shop lists this release.
