This 2002 Remastered CD edition of the 1977 studio album on Harvest Records comes with the Original Artwork and 1 Bonus Track!

After the difference between ‘Spartacus’ and ‘Old Loves Die Hard’ dividing their audience, TRIUMVIRAT started to lose popularity and so Hans Bathelt and Barry Palmer left the band.

Jürgen Fritz being the only original member, he decided to work on another historical album about the Vesuvius eruption in 45 a.d. and asked Helmut Köllen to rejoin the band, but he felt that the vocal sections were not adequate for his voice so left the project. Suddenly, tragedy hit the band when Helmut died from carbon monoxide poisoning whilst listening to his latest tapes in his car. This really hit Jürgen hard, and he had to gather all his strength to keep TRIUMVIRAT alive, and the best way to do that was to continue with the ‘Pompeii’ project.

Musician Line-up:
Jürgen Fritz (Steinway grand piano / Hammond C3 organ / Moog synthesizer / Yamaha polyphonic CS-80 / GX-1 & ARP String Ensemble synths / Fender Rhodes / Hohner clavinet / bells / timpani / arranger, producer & conductor - strings, horns & choir), Barry Palmer (lead & backing vocals), Dieter Petereit (Fender, Rickenbacker & Yamaha basses) and Curt Cress (drums / roto toms / timbales / cymbals / gongs / handclaps / electronic percussion).
Plus guests: Sondra Fritz (vocals on track 4), Ulla Wiesner, Hanna Dölitzch and Brigitte Witt (all backing vocals), Hanne Wilfert (trumpet solo on track 2) and Karl Löhe (string section master).
