The 1981 release by Carrere Records includes "We're Illegal" instead of "Live to Rock", and was released under the Don Dokken moniker, with a different line-up. The original mix was completely different and the song "Paris Is Burning" is simply called "Paris".

The vinyl version has different cover art than the CD version pictured here.

Recording information:

Engineered at Dierks Studios, West Germany
Mixed at Total Access Studios, Redondo Beach, CA, USA
Digitally mastered at JVC, Hoollywood, CA, USA

"Paris is Burning" recoded live in Berlin, December 1982
