Notes

Reissue/remix of the original 1985 album.

- Recorded at Indigo Ranch Studios, Malibu & Crystal Sound Labs, Hollywood, CA, December 1984 and January 1985. Mixed at Enterprise Studios.

- "These Boots" is a parody of Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots Are Made for Walkin" which was included on the original pressing unedited. However, this is a heavily bleeped version, due to songwriter Lee Hazlewood's refusal to grant the group the rights to re-release the version with its altered lyrics intact.

- The booklet has introductory paragraphs written by Mustaine, Ellefson, and Scott Ian of Anthrax. The songs are annotated by Mustaine and Ellefson.
- Dedicated to the memory of Gar Samuelson.

Would be 5 stars but "These Boots" is annoyingly edited with bleeps.
