Side A:

  70s rock.

  Rockabilly

5. MARTY MITCHELL BAND - Hindsight
  Rock.
6. DIRTY PEARL - Away Through The Breeze
  Soft rock.
7. THE SCHOOLBOYS - Mean Street Machine
  Great fast-paced NWOAHM. These guys would later become ICON, but not before appearing on a couple more compilations.

Side B:
1. CITY KIDS - The Hood
  Blues rock.
2. LEGEND - Rock & Roll
  Pub rock.
3. TRAVIS LANE - Rock & Roll Star
  Hard rock with a few too many keyboards, like ANGEL plus a classic Hocus Pocus finish.
4. TONY ALOSI BAND - It's Alright (She's Alright)
  Alternative rock.
5. JIM & THE TONIC BAND - I Like It There With You
  Jazz rock.
6. WHITENOISE - Soul Of The Spider
  An improvement over their track on Volume 3, the music is great epic hard rock but with unfortunately poppy vocals. That's not to say they are bad, they just don't fit the music.
