This was released outside the US and Canada only which only had Rock of Ages instead. My import copy is from the Philippines and has the two CDs (the shop has the single CD from Malaysia too). The Kinks classic "Waterloo Sunset" is the new song here later on Yeah! All of Vault both US and EU is here plus later tracks.
There should be a photo of Pete Willis too. It's not like he's Pete Best (Tony Kenning is more the Pete Best of Leppard).
Allom previously worked with Priest and even Genesis. This was recorded at the former Lennon and later Starr estate in racing capital Ascot, Berks.
These have overdubs not on the original B-sides so this isn't you're average rarities collection! The cover is an optical illusion.
A return to form with this album after changing direction with Slang. Once again I looked to Canada to buy this (I'm in the States but in relative proximity to the border). Might try further away in future and the next paragraph explains why.
In Australia, Worlds Collide and Under My Wheels are added to make up for not going there often, and in Japan, Burnout and Immortal are the bonus tracks as explained in the FAQ in the past, it's to keep fans from buying cheaper imports which is bad for the Nikkei.
Followed by a VH1 Storytellers on US TV.
In many markets the colours are reversed on the cover. In Japan there's the bonus track "Kiss the Day". I could only afford the Canadian one again.
I bought the CD in Canada less than a year ago. It's on Mercury but originally came out there on sister label Vertigo which I have on LP. Almost everywhere else it was on vanity label Bludgeon Riffola through Phonogram. A monumental album after what poor Rick went through.
Discogs has copies. The tracks should be bonus tracks on a remaster of On Through the Night if there ever is one. Someone from Joes old job had a copy she bought from him on eBay once but missus wanted a few bob for it.
In 1984 the album was reissued with remixes of "Heartbreak" and "Me and My Wine" (which doesn't sound remixed but Mutt would insist that he did!). I have the early EU CD but in the States the original track order is restored.
