I have this record and I hear NO difference between this version and the one on the debut LP. Same vocal effects, same average runtime... If their is a difference, it sure isn't worth the hype! :)

"Runaway" was recorded as demo in 1981 and re-recorded with The All Star Review in 1982.
The 1982 version was used for Bon Jovi′s first album and this record.
Of course, Snake wasn't here!
