Annotation

Morbid Tales was released as a EP and as an LP. Done just after Tom Warrior decided to change is band name from Hellhammer to Celtic Frost. To goal was to produce something that would sound better and "new".

Tracks 1 through 9 is the original American release. 10 through 12 are the Emperor's Return EP that was special to this edition.
