The album was used for licence broadcast on November 17, 1984, by a syndicated independent radio program created by Casey Kasem, Don Bustany, Tom Rounds and Ron Jacobs.

The compilation includes "The Wild Boys" by Duran Duran. This single which reached no.2 on the US Billboard Hot 100, which featured a B-side live recording of "Cracks in the Pavement" from the 5 March 1984 show at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto.
