I'm thinking about filling out my Quiet Riot collection and I have my eye on this "Original Album Classics" set at DeepDiscount: Four studio albums (plus a live disc) in one handy dandy little box, for about twenty bucks:
My question to anyone who might own this set is this: as you can see, the box cover art shows the Randy Rhoads lineup (!) of Quiet Riot, and seems to indicate that the set includes "Quiet Riot I," which to the best of my knowledge was and still is a Japan-only release.
HOWEVER, the track listing shown on this site (and several others that I've checked) all show the tracks for the self-titled QR album from 1988
, with Paul Shortino on vox, not "Quiet Riot I."
So does this set actually include a Rhoads-era disc, or did Sony's art department screw up cuz they don't know one QR lineup (or one self titled QR album) from another?
Amazon's listing for this set shows a different cover (Kevin with the metal mask in place of the Rhoads era lineup, and the 1988 QR album instead of Quiet Riot I).
So I am getting the feeling that wherever I order this set from, I'm gonna get the Shortino album, not the Rhoads one. It doesn't make much diff to me either way, cuz I've never owned either one (tho honestly I think I'd rather hear the Rhoads stuff). I'm just wondering if anyone has either one of the sets pictured and might be able to shed some light.
