Side A:
1. DGH-ROCK - Vessashade Boogie Night
  Novelty-sounding calypso(?)-pop-rock.
2. TAKKU - Hei Me Tiedetään Kuka Se Oli
  Great catchy rock with a 70's flair.
3. PIN-UP BOYS - Hakalanranta Kutsuu
  Power/d.i.y.-pop.
4. KÄRSIMYKSEN MALJA - Ei Enempää
  Melancholic amateur rock.
5. SALMIAKKI - Lähimmäiset
  Pop/rock.
6. UJO & LIEVÄ - Menevä Mies
  Singer-songwriters w/ acoustic guitar.
7. NEXT - Lintumies
  Amateur rock.
8. LAHTISEN TANET - On Eilen Tainnut Tulla Otetuksi
  Novelty.

Side B:
1. HESSEN - Kuvitelma
  Rock'n'Roll meets powerpop.
2. RAILWAY - Get Up
  Hardish rock but no traces of Metal, sorry.
3. Z-BLACK - Now We've Got Time
  Limp pop-rock.
4. DISTANCE - Night Runner
  Good, fast-forward NWOFHM with them trademark Scandinavian vocal melodies. Same band who did the "It Seems To Be Right/Caught In The Fire" 7" and also featured on the "Suomi Rock 1" comp LP.
5. THE WILD BUNCH - No Money No Love
  Simple, straigh forward Hard Rock missing the ballsiness of for instance their countrymen Peer Günt.
6. IRON HORSE - This Time
  Great, raspy vocals elevate this melodic boogie-metal piece high above the average-mark. Neat find for fans of the earliest NWOHM-sound.
7. STONED - Song For You
  Another Metal-free hard(ish) rocker.
8. IRONCROSS - Dealer
  A simply crackin' lead riff makes this my fave song by the band. Pefect NWOFHM rocketfuel and soundwise smack-in-the-middle between their debut and the "Street Warrior" LP.
