Originally self-released on MC in 1987 without any cover and with original title На службе силы зла
(Serving Evil Force
). This edition was mixed and mastered by band themselves and it was distributed through MC stores. Later this MC edition was presented to Мелодия
as demo recording but label preferred to release slightly re-mixed material than re-recorded.
MC includes one additional track which was not included to LP release due to vinyl length:
7. Дай руку мне (05:08)
This track was later re-released on compilations Легенды русского рока
(1997) and Штиль
Released on LP in 1988 by Мелодия
with another title Герой асфальта
and translated title Hero of a Speedway
and with original cover (upper). This edition was mixed and mastered by label sound engineer. Label dropped out song Дай руку мне
(Give Me Your Hand
) due to vinyl length.
Re-mastered and re-released in 1994 on CD by Moroz Records
with different cover (bottom).
