Initially released on the band's own label, Happy Face, and limited to 1000 copies, the album came in a plain white sleeve, with no track listing and no title, therefore known as "The White Album". Each copy was signed by one member of the band (:250 signatures each member).

This was the game-setting album by Diamond Head, and all of the songs featured on it have been re-recorded at various stages in the group's career.

Re-issued on vinyl with the top cover, then the bottom cover was used for the initial CD pressing.

There have actually been quite a few re-releases, and it's hard to mention all of them.

High Vaultage Records reissued the album with the following bonus tracks:
8. Streets of Gold (3:34)
9. Shoot Out the Lights (4:17)
10. Waited Too Long (3:53)
11. Play It Loud (3:31)
12. Diamond Lights (3:31)
13. We Won't Be Back (4:18)
14. I Don't Got (4:18)
15. It's Electric (Remix)

Sanctuary Records also reissued the album with the same bonus tracks (in a slightly different order) except for "It's Electric (Remix)".

Single-Disc "Deluxe Edition" released by Sanctuary Records in November 2011.

Re-released, in 2011, by Universal Music, in 2 Discs "Deluxe Edition" Digipack.
First disc, cointain the standard seven songs Tracklist.
Second disc, cointain same bonustracks, (in a slightly different order) except for
"It's Electric (Remix)".
