    Here is a compilation record that I picked up along the way that was released by Carrere Records back in 1982. It seems to be an attempt by the label to release somthing similar to the NWOBHM compilations that were popping up at the time. This is basically a mix of bands that were on the Carrere roster at the time. There are two Saxon and Demon tracks included to anchor the release. It's also very interesting to hear early songs from Dokken that were recorded long before the band started using hair spray and teasing their hair. The Heartbreak track is a real standout on this record. The vinyl scans are included.

    This appears to be the French edition of the album.
    There were different versions put out in the UK, Italy & Mexico, and all had slightly different tracklists, & there may have been more variations in other regions.
    The Mexican release omitted Dokken & Brian Connolly, but added Spitfire.
    The UK version omitted Connolly also, adding Rose Tattoo instead.
    The Italian version did the same, but also omitted Heartbreak, adding a 2nd Rose tattoo track instead.
