CONTENT
(bold = exclusive track / normal = non-exclusive track / italic = non-metal)



Side A:
1. THE JESSIE CHRISTOPHER BAND - The Superstar Of Air Guitar
  Boogie rock.
2. ROBERT KRAUSE - Right Here
  A chugging metal riff and some nice guitar noodling, but the singer sounds drunk and uses way too much reverb.
3. POHAKU - Save The Land
  Jam rock with a few hard rock elements.
4. JOE DAGGER AND THE RHYTHM SLAVES - Revelations
  Good melodic rock.
5. HOT & GLASSY - Hot & Glassy Theme
  Pop/rock instrumental.

Side B:
1. MIKE FURLONG - The Biz
  Mainstream rock.
2. DOUG STILLWELL AND THE RAINBOW CHASE - She's Lookin' Hot Tonight
  Garage rock.
3. REVOLUCION - Everything's Alright
  Female fronted melodic rock that sounds like early HEART.
4. STEEPCLIFF - Somewhere To Go
  Hard rock with some early RUSH inspired riffs but overall a much more straightforward/mainstream rock sound.
5. ZONTRAZIO - Thirteen And Beyond
  Braindead hard rock that, most likely unintentionally, brings to mind SPINAL TAP more than any "real" band.
