This is unfortunately another instance where I don’t recall where I ended up encountering this item, but I definitely know of its fate – it was sold. Sold quite quickly actually. I can see why the track selection is not terrible, being all original recordings, and the artwork is so horrendously late 80s it brings a silly grin to my face when looking at it.

According to the entry for this release on 45Worlds consumers would save their Twix chocolate wrappers in order to exchange them for this tape.

There one other Twix Trax release (volume II) released a year later in 1988; I am yet to discover this release.
