Collector's notes ( detailed background information on the persons working on this album)

Dimo Safari has been photographing many music artists, performers and bands for their album covers. Some well-known names include: Rush, Kick Axe, Lee Aaron, Triumph, Helix, Billy Idol, Pink Floyd, Jeff Healey Band, Celine Dion, Fates Warning, Rolling Stones and many others.

Ed Stone has been producing and sound engineering several Heavy Metal bands during the 1980s. The bands include: Razor, Kick Axe, Warriors, Deaf Dealer, Exciter, Hanover Fist, Reckless.

Hans Peter Huber a Swiss Sound and Mixing engineer, known for the albums by Krokus, Kick Axe, W.A.S.P.

Hugh Syme is a Canadian Juno Award-winning graphic artist and member of the Premier Artists Collection (PAC) who is best known for his artwork and cover concepts for rock and metal bands. He is also a musician and has appeared in some Rush songs as a keyboard player. Syme is notably responsible for all of Rush's album cover art since 1975's Caress of Steel as well as creating Rush's famous Starman logo.

Iron Maiden fans remember him best as the designer of The X Factor cover, which shows the band's mascot Eddie the Head dissected. It is remembered for its gritty realism. Whereas all previous Maiden albums were oil paintings, the X Factor Eddie was a puppet with some digital touch-ups to enhance its look. In some countries the cover was considered so gruesome that a less gory alternative was offered (the alternative cover is actually the back of the original CD booklet)

Collectors may wish to collect his complete oeuvre of album covers.
