Notes

  • Track 1 sounds like a live track, but it is not.  It is really a studio track.
  • Track 5 originally appeared on the soundtrack to the movie Vision Quest before it appeared here.

  • Below are the images for a cassette tape version of the album, the backside of the US 1985 original CD release, as well as the old mid 80’s “long box” style of packaging from back then.

    There was also an official video made for Hungry For Heaven using live footage of the band with their dragon & castle stage set-up playing to the studio track.

    I nearly forgot! He also did one for The King of Rock and Roll along the same lines as the Hungry for Heaven video!
