  1. Not sure about #8 but it did debut high on the Rock charts the first week it came out. Bands were cashing in big on reunions (thank you KISS!) and Portrait was reborn by legendary A&R guru John Kalodner. With that kind of influence, a band could debut out of nowhere. I remember at the time Portrait had Ratt, Damn Yankees, Great White, Night Ranger and another old hair band signed (Cinderella?) but the only ones to have any success was Great White. ‘Rollin’ Stoned’ got airplay in RI, so did ‘Wooden Jesus’.

    I picked up the Japanese version first because of the bonus track ‘The Good Die Young’ and about 2 weeks later I grabbed the U.S. version for $6 used.

  2. Yeah, I believe Cinderella was one of the acts. For some reason I was thinking were the only veteran acts Great White & Ratt signed (I think industrial/nu-metal band Union Underground was also signed).

    Cinderella never got around to releasing anything under Portrait, did they?
