Notes

This is a repress made in USA. The first pressing was pressed in Japan.

Track 4 is a pastiche with altered lyrics of Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots Are Made For Walkin" and was removed from later pressings because Lee Hazlewood, the writer of the song called it a "perversion of the original song". Although Hazelewood had been paid royalties for years, Dave Mustaine eventually decided to cut the song from the album. The song re-appeared in edited form in 2002 remastered re-issue of the album.

Recorded and mixed at Indigo Ranch Studios, Malibu and Crystal Sound Labs, Hollywood, December 1984 and January 1985.

Issued in a standard jewel case with clear CD tray and a 4-page booklet with photos, lyrics and credits.
