Album Notes By dltourhistory

A North American only reissue of the 1981 studio album plus two extra tracks. It was intended to capitalise on the success of 'Pyromania' during 1983. Included were two extra tacks - remixes done by Mutt Lange. 'Bringin' On The Heartbreak' and it's original B-Side 'Me & My Wine' were reworked by Mutt to sound more like 'Pyromania'. Videos were made in February 1984 for both tracks in Dublin, Ireland where the band were starting to write 'Hysteria'.

The US CD version originally featured the two bonus tracks but current versions do not (since the mid-90s). UK and international CD versions are still identical to the US original 12 track and were released during the late 80s. The vinyl and cassette versions had the remix of 'BOTH' at the start of side two with 'Me & My Wine' at the end of side one.
