The title Sol Et Luna (Latin for 'Sun And Moon') of this pirate CD is only printed on the front insert and one of the side strips; the CD body and the back insert are titled Mystery Tracks Vol. II, referring to the pirate Mystery Tracks that is of the same kind in compiling (at the time of the pirate release) rare official material. Besides other tracks, Sol Et Luna is coming up with the complete soundtrack Heartbreakers (1985). In 1994, at the time of release of Sol Et Luna, the original Virgin release of Heartbreakers was out of print for a few years making it an exorbitant expensive collector's item. But only a year after release of Sol Et Luna the soundtrack album was officially re-released by Silva Screen. Besides the eleven tracks from the soundtrack album, Sol Et Luna compiles tracks from the official releases Ossiach Live (1971), '70-'80 (1980), Alexander Square (1989) and Rockoon Special Edition (1992). Most of the tracks of this CD have obviously been mastered from vinyl, and the sound quality is less excellent than that of comparable pirate releases.


The text on the backside insert refers to an alleged Italian record company called 'Medusa Disci' in Milano, but in fact the origin of this CD was Germany.


1994: 'Sphinx/Medusa Disci'
