  2. Fandango! (1975)
  1. Tejas (1976)
  2. El Loco (1981) (3-CD: Warner Bros. Records, 925 661-2)
Contains their first six albums. All albums except El Loco were slightly remixed. Julian Hermeyer kindly sent me an analysis: They were remixed so they would sound more like the stuff from the 80s (El Loco, Eliminator, Afterburner). But the difference isn’t THAT big. It’s simply more reverb, especially on the drums – very noticeable e.g. on “La Grange”. So there was nothing really “added” to the originals.
