Some info: This is a better collection of songs than on “Greatest Hits” For example is “Rosalita” on this album. “Held Up” is preformed on December 31 1980. The song is on “Nassau Night”. “From Small Things” is recorded in 83. “Trapped” is recorded live and actually released on “We Are The World” album. “Viva Las Vegas” was the first song that Bruce recorded and released after breaking up from the band.

"I'm gonna have me some fun (Viva Las Vegas)", "Some damn fool with a guitar walkin' down the street (Held Up Without A Gun)"
