This one is sometimes to referred to as Metal for the Master (even though those words don't appear on the cassette) or Tone Zone (after the name of the studio it was recorded at in Chicago, Illinois). This tape is also sometimes listed as a 1983 or 1987 release, but that was probably due to someone misreading the last “9” in the small text on the cover.
