Compilations - The Highlights


In the large number of compilations featuring Laibach most of them do not have exclusive Laibach tracks, also those that are not actually album tracks are still often found elsewhere. However there are some compilations that do stand out for various reasons. Below is a list that would be worth checking out.

This compilation celebrated the European Neofolk music scence even if a couple of the bands came from outside Europe.

It's an excellent compilation and lavishly designed in a hardback book format featuring a booklet in English and German with many photographs.
