Excellent Album, And Biggest Snafu on a CD Cover ever???

"Ok these are rarities - i.e. assorted B-Sides and other Home studio throw-asides. These are raw recordings from a band whose main studio releases themselves were studies in rawness. The Mix quality is quite bad - guitars are low in the mix in most tracks, and understandably, it's Lemmy's bass which takes center stage. The drums are trebly for the most part. This certainly is nowhere near the full-bodied 'In your face' production they had for the 'Bastards' CD.Certain songs almost jar my good speakers for all that bass - it's that pronounced. However, all songs are fun, and if you like the quirky humor of a Motorhead track and that mock-serious bravado, all these tracks will bring a smile to your face. How I wish I could see Lemmy's face as he sings "Louie Louie".
OK Now for the Biggest Snafu ever seen on a CD Cover, which along with the mostly bad mix, made a usually generous me take out one whole star - click the picture and enlarge it and check the band member names - Since when did Fast Eddie get adopted by the 'Taylor' family? WTF?? Didn't the band proof read their own goddamn CD???"
Motorhead is great
