Track 04 : "Back On The Streets" is also recorded by the band 3 SPEED in 1984 for the "Voyage Of The Rock Aliens" soundtrack album. 
The same year Frehley's Comet demoed "Back On The Streets".

Track 06 : "I Need Love", apart from being a Warrior demo, this song would be demoed, along with other Vinnie Vincent material during Vinnie's recording career with KISS. Parts of this song would be recycled into the Vinnie Vincent Invasion track "Shoot U Full Of Love".

Track 08 : "Baby Oh Why" would be re-written as "Baby-O" for inclusion on Vinnie Vincent Invasion's 1986 album.

Track 01, 02, 03, 04, 06 and 08 are released on the 2LP bootleg; Vinnie Vincent ; 1186-20 (released 1987).
This bootleg also contains a track called "Stealaway", but that song has nothing to do with Vinnie Vincent; actually the song is from Poison's "Night Crime - demo".
