The original album and CD pressing (cat.-no. CD-FA 3121) is an 8-track album omitting "Sanctuary," which was a bonus track on the U.S. version.

The 1995 reissue comes with a bonus CD with the following track list:
01 - Sanctuary
02 - Burning Ambition (02:40)
03 - Drifter (Live 3.04.1980 in London, The United Kingdom) (06:04)
04 - I've Got the Fire (Montrose cover) (Live 3.04.1980 in London, The United Kingdom) (03:14)

The 1998 remaster album cover is different from the original released in 1980 and contains the bonus track "Sanctuary". It also contains special enhanced CD-ROM multimedia section with videos, exclusive photo galleries, biographies, internet links plus a deluxe 24 page colour booklet with full lyrics, Eddie art and photos.

All titles composed by Steve Harris except tracks 2 & 3 (Harris & Paul Di'Anno) and track 7 (Dave Murray). The track numbers above are on the original version, thus not counting Sanctuary.

"Sanctuary", when initially added as a bonus track, was track 7, however when the enhanced CD's were released in 1998, it moved to track 2.
