1980 - 1982 ; Vinnie Vincent songs in Happy Days
In 1980, Vincent moved to Los Angeles, California where he became a (Paramount) staff songwriter for the television series " Happy Days" and "Joanie Loves Chachi". Many of the series songs were written on Vincent's acoustic guitar while sitting at the Cunninghams' kitchen table on the Happy Days set, during off-time from the show's rehearsal schedule.
During the last two seasons of the show, he wrote every song Joanie and Chachi sang together. Below : Happy Days' Scott Baio and Erin Moran sing "You Look At Me".
01 You Look At Me (from "Happy Days") (2:48) Vincent

1982 ; Joanie Loves Chachi
This song would be performed by Scott Baio on the show, broadcasted on October 21, 1982 in the "One-on-One" episode. Bennett Salvay was the show's musical director.
In the video below the song starts at 9:22 / credits 24:38.

1987 - 1988 ? ; Vinnie Vincent - demo 
This demo sounds near the same as the versions on "Vinnie Vincent with Jeff Scott Soto - Publishing Tape", but on this demo Vinnie Vincent did the lead vocals by himself.
01 Young Blood, Young Fire (4:25) Vincent
02 Forbidden (3:39) Vincent

1988 ; Vinnie Vincent (with WARRIOR)
"Thrill Of A Chase" was first roughly demoed by Steven Rosen and Jimmy Waldo.
When Vinnie Vincent heard that demo, he loved the song so much that he was keen to do his own version of it. That's why WARRIOR (including Vinnie Vincent) went into to studio in 1988 (6 years after the band split up) to record the song.
A different version (without Vinnie Vincent's vocals and guitars) appeared on Jimmy Waldo & Steven Rosen's "Voices Of The Past" (2018). (Copyright registered in April 1988)
