Side A:
1. DC STAR - Is It You?
  Enjoyable upbeat hard rock from their debut EP. Something of a local radio hit, this song also appeared on the WPDH: Rock 'N' Roll Album and WAPP New York Rocks 1983 compilations.
2. MAZARIN - I Can't Deny
  Powerpop.
3. SORETHUMB - Give Me Your Heart
  AOR.
4. RANDY COVEN BAND - Angry
  Pomp rock.
5. YOUNG BREED - When Will I See You Again?
  Pomp rock ballad.

Side B:
1. VIXEN - Contact 1-2-3
  New wave.
2. BABY - Why I Can't Have You
  Pop/rock.
3. CINTRON - Burning For Your Touch
  Decent hard rock with a distinct 70s feel, like a heavier version of FREE or MOLLY HATCHET.
4. LONG BEACH LONG ISLAND - Nuclear Reactions
  I feel certain this is a parody of a popular song but can't put my finger on it. Regadless it is a well done song in the style of LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM that addresses the issues of a proposed nuclear power plant on Long Island.
5. BROKEN ARROW - Tell-Tale Heart
  Soft melodic rock.
6. R-BEST - Danger In The Street
  Pop AOR.
