First re-release of second full-length album by the legendary American Heavy/Glam Metal band.
On W.A.S.P.'s sophomore effort the band hired Quiet Riot producer Spencer Proffer to man the boards, resulting in a slightly more accessible sound than their rugged self-titled debut. Although the album wasn't the massive commercial breakthrough the band had hoped for, it resulted in their second Gold-certified release in a row as they became one of the more popular Metal bands of the mid-'80s (touring heavily with the likes of Kiss, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden). Blackie Lawless' lyrics still relied heavily on sexual fantasies ("Sex Drive"), as well as tales of revenge ("Ballcrusher", "Jack Action"), and children of the street ("Running Wild in the Streets").
The album's two singles/videos proved popular on MTV's Heavy Metal-oriented shows - the party-hearty "Blind in Texas" and "Wild Child", the latter a tale of a Harley-riding free spirit.
The album made No. 47 on Billboard's top 200 album chart in early 1986. It also sold over 1000000 copies.
This re-edition have nearly doubled the original album's length, featuring a cover of Mountain's early-'70s hit "Mississippi Queen", the original B-side "Savage" and five live tracks recorded at England's Lyceum in October of 1984!
Sanctuary/Snapper Music, 1985/1997 (SDPCD123). Made in U.K. Pressed in Germany.
