Notes

All songs recorded at Rainbow Studios, except tracks 7 & 8 recorded in Dereck Higgins' basement on a 4-track and engineered and mixed by him.
All songs were remastered from the original 2-track mixes at Ware House Productions in 1994.
Track 9 was mixed especially for this CD because a 2-track master never existed for it.
