The Blue Hearts' previous American release, the self-titled CD/12" vinyl EP, was a 6 song compilation with selections from their self-titled first album, "The Blue Hearts", and their second album, "Young and Pretty". As with their first American release, this album was also a compilation of songs: this time from their first album and their third, "Train-Train". The first four songs were from "The Blue Hearts" and the rest were from "Train-Train", except for "Chernobyl" and "The Blue Hearts Theme", which had only been released as singles in Japan.
