- Dedicated to the memory of Dave Holocaust, Jeff Kincaid, and Al Klohs.

- Released at a Purgatory-headlined show at the Phantasy Theater (with opening acts being Don Foose's live debut with The Spudmonsters and Seductive Blasphemy), on November 21, 1989. The first 100 copies [advanced copies with black & white cover and different inlay] sold out that night before it became available in several local music stores in the following weeks. The cassette was promoted by the band as an ep (not a demo, as it has become known online) with full 24-track production, high quality printed tapes and full-color, twp-sided, fold-out inlay. A promotional press pack also exists with a glossy band photo and three pages of Dr. Pain lyric sheets.

"Dr. Pain" and "Prayer For the Dead (The Final Vision)" are remakes of Dark Alley Surgery-era songs originally performed with Jeff Hatrix on vocals between '87 and '89. After Andy Boyer's 1989 recruitment, some Dark Alley Surgery-era songs were given new lyrics and titles, restructured vocal melodies by Boyer, and minor instrumental/structural changes by the band. "Prayer For the Dead (The Final Vision)" is a remake of "Purgatory II (The Final Vision)" and "Dr. Pain" is a remake of "TV Thieves".

Recording information:

- Recorded and mixed September 1989 at Modern Recording Studios, Cleveland, Ohio.
- Co-mixed, co-produced and assistant co-engineered by Purgatory.
