FIFTH ANGEL (1986)
"It was recorded at the same time as the first half of the first album was recorded. It was written by Ed [Archer] and Ted [Pilot]. He [Archer] also played some of the guitar solos on it. It was decided that the track neither fit with the musical direction of the album, nor was it a good enough song for inclusion and release, so it was simply shelved. I don't believe we ever even shopped it.
"My best guess is that it's origin probably only goes back to a cassette tape tossed in a waste basket because the masters were supposedly turned over to CBS by Shrapnel and I doubt they even got that reel because it (the track) wasn't part of the deal between the labels (Shrapnel and Epic on the buy-out)."
