The song "Jailbreak" was later released as a CD single with a different cover and two more songs: "Urethane" from The Action Is Go and a live version of "Coyote Duster" from the Dynamo Open Air. "Coyote Duster" was originally released on Daredevil. The version of "Jailbreak" that appears on the CD is also a remastered version.

CD track listingEdit

  1. "Jailbreak"
  2. "Urethane"
  3. "Coyote Duster" (live)

"Jailbreak" was a "test recording" with J. Yuenger of White Zombie to determine if they would get along. (This was stated by Scott Hill in an interview.[citation needed]) They apparently did, as Yuenger later produced their album, The Action Is Go.

Both versions of "Jailbreak" are out of print.
