Annotation

First saw the light of day in 1981, as this was the Finnish glam metal band's first record. Not bad for one of those lesser known '80's hair bands. Have always liked what I did manage to hear from these guys. Sorry to say that I have the original CD reissue, not the later pressing with the six added bonus cuts. Regardless, Hanoi freaking R-O-C-K-S! Tunes I got the most out of were the rocking "Tragedy", "Village Girl", "Lost In The City" {I'm almost sure I've seen a video for this song somewhere}, "First Timer" and "11th Street Kidzz". Belongs right next to your CD's by Jetboy, Faster Pussycat, Kix, Poison and obviously Motley Crue.
