Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the British Metal rockers' 1984 album including nine bonus tracks. Crusader was produced by Kevin Beamish at Sound City in Los Angeles (a far cry from their South Yorkshire roots!). According to singer Biff Byford, "We were trendsetters back then. Today, everybody from Trivium onwards dresses like knights going to the crusades, and writes lyrics about it. But back then it was virtually unheard of for a Metal band to do anything like that." As well as previously unavailable demo versions of the album's 'A Little Bit of What You Fancy', 'Sailing to America', a cover of the Sweet's 'Set Me Free' and the title track, this edition now includes the rare tracks 'Borderline' and 'Helter Skelter'. EMI. 2009.
