Yay, it’s another cheesy Ronco compilation from the UK!

I bought this one JUST for the cover… and oh what a cover it is. Lightsabers, ample doses of neon, pink and blue color-scheme, pseudo punks with bad boots. Delicious. Marvelous. ‘To ensure the highest quality reproduction the running times of some titles as originally released have been changed’ proclaims the small print on the back- who the fuck cares when the cover is this rad?!?!?
