Available on the re-release of Walls of Jericho (2006).

A December 1986 picture disc re-release contains a remixed version of "Murderer" and a "surprise track", which is a rendition of "White Christmas/I'll Be Your Santa Claus" featuring Michael Kiske. It is his first recording with the band, and it was released in order to announce Kiske's entry into Helloween.

"White Christmas" features vocals by Kiske, Weikath and Hansen, while "I'll Be Your Santa Claus" features only Kiske as singer.

Re-released on CD by Victor Entertainment (Japan only) in 1996.

Tracks 1 and 5 by Hansen and Weikath, tracks 2, 3 and 4 by Hansen.

The “Happy Happy Halloween” Starlight (track 1) intro is taken from the 1982 American movie Halloween III: Season of the Witch.

The "satanic laughter" in "Victim of Fate" (track 4) is provided by Harris Johns.
