THE DISCO BURP CHOIR: Eddie MEDUZA, Thomas WITT, John NORUM, Rolf S.S. PERSSON

Produced by: Thomas WITT and Anders OREDSON

CD version: released in 2002 by Transit Records.

Bonus tracks on CD: "Oh, What A Cadillac" (B-side of "Punkjävlar" single) and  "Disco Burp" (B-side of  maxi promo "The Eddie Meduza Rock'n'Roll Show").

There are 2 cover versions: the Swedish one with the opening at the top, and the front side transparent - so that the inside-t-shirt is visible - and the inner cover is open on the left; the dutch version (the most wide-spread), has the opening on the right and the front side is all in one piece, and a jellow promotional mark with some of the songs on the front, and the inner cover is open on the top.

"Punkjävlar" was the only song of the album performed in swedish, but it became the most popular one...

A later edition (after 1984) presents a red mark instead of the usual yellow-orange one. On the cd-cover there's an image, the LP has CBS logo under the yellow one.

John Norum was only 14 years old when he played the guitar solo in "Punkjävlar", for that reason the LP features also his step-father, Thomas Witt, as drummer and producer.

This album remained in the charts for 14 weeks, and reached the 29th place.
