Rocket from the Crypt - Compilations

Rocket from the Crypt appeared on tons of compilations over the years. I have focused on the ones containing songs or versions of songs that did not appear elsewhere.

Headstart to Purgatory LP

Headhunter HED-010, released 1992

Contains the Rocket from the Crypt tracks "Nail Biter" and "Battery Licker."

This comp was an important early appearance for Rocket from the Crypt. It contains the exclusive tracks "Nail Biter" and "Battery Licker." Black vinyl, not terribly difficult to find.

Happy Birthday, Baby Jesus 10"

Sympathy for the Record Industry SFTRI-271, released 1993

Contains the Rocket from the Crypt song "Cancel Christmas"

Greatest Christmas record ever. Hands down. This 1993 10" has a number of highlights in addition to the Rocket song. I am fairly certain now that this only exists on black vinyl, which can be found without too much drama. This record was paired with its sequel and re-released later as a double CD.

Compulsiv for Two 7"

Pitchblende - Drop Me in the Drink/Walleye - Of a Lesser Degree b/w Rocket from the Crypt - Call It a Clue/Rodan - Shiner

Compulsiv CPS 012, released 1994

This 7" compilation contained an exclusive Rocket song...until it was included on All Systems Go 2. "Call It a Clue" and "Call It a Complex," from the Japanese version of the first All Systems Go, are, in fact, different songs. This record was only on black vinyl, and is easy to find.

Dope, Guns, 'N Fucking in the Streets Volume 11 7"

RFTC - Tiger Mask/Calvin Krime - Fight Song b/w Gaunt - Kiss Destroyer/Servotron - Matrix of Perfection

Amphetamine Reptile Scale 94, released 1997

"Tiger Mask" is a great track, exclusive to this record and the later CD compilation of the last few Dope 7"s. There is an instrumental version that was included on All Systems Go 3.
