Well there are a good amount of people that don't realize that Randy Rhoads is the man that started Quiet Riot when he was 16. Metal Health was not the first album by this band. This album has some tracks from the first 2 Quiet Riot albums which were only released in Japan. Randy was a great guitarist in the '70s before joining Ozzy. I think the songs on this compilation are better than anything Quiet Riot went on to release throughout the '80s and beyond. Kevin DuBrow's voice is much more solid in these recordings. Songs like "Trouble" and "Killer Girls" were remixed and sound better than the originals. "Last Call For Rock & Roll" was originally "Mama's Angels" from Quiet Riot 1 and was re-made with new lyrics and basically turned into a completely different song that is only available on this album and I must say it's a great tune. If you want to hear some of the earlier works of Randy Rhoads and how Quiet Riot started out, this is a compilation well worth purchasing.

This is a great album, and as one of the other reviewers said it is great that Kevin Dubrow took the time to put out this tribute to the late great Randy Rhoads. Even though his playing is nothing compared to his later works with Ozzy, and the lyrics are kind of cheesy, and the overall sound of the band is pop metal doesn't mean that it's not good. To be totally honest even if Randy Rhoads wasn't on this album i'd still be inot it. I think that Kevin Dubrow has an amazingly powerful voice and the rhythm section at that time which featured Kelly Garni on bass and Drew Forsyth on drums was very powerful and solid, and Randy's playing was top notch.
The album begins with the song Trouble. This song was originally on Quiet Riot 2. The first 2 Quiet Riot albums were only released in Japan. There was also another album that was recorded but never released. Trouble is a great song and probably the best on this compilation. Randy's solo is great as usual. The next song is amazing also. It is a live version of Laughing Gas which features an extended solo from Randy and was recorded at the legendary L.A. club The Starwood. It's also cool because he plays parts in the solo that he used in Ozzy. In the middle of the solo he plays parts from Dee and Goodbye to Romance, and when the band comes back in they play the beginning of Crazy Train. The next song is Afterglow (Of your Love.) It is a great song. It's all acoustic except for the solo. It was originally from Quiet Riot 2 but this is a different version. Killer Girls is an upbeat pop metal song. It's a pretty good song. Again like every other song features amazing guitar work by Randy Rhoads. The next song Picking Up the Pieces is as pop as you're gonna get on this album.

I don't care if the sound quality is not as great as recordings are today. I don't care about top of the line lyrics. I care about one of the greatest guitarists ever to live- Randy Rhoads. These early works with Quiet Riot reflect later acheivements he reached with my other idol- Ozzy Osbourne, it's a shame that he died so early in his life when there was so much more he could have shared with us, this album as well as "The Blizzard of Ozz", "Diary of a Madman" and "Tribute" (by Ozzy) are true classics as well as Randys only professional works available on albums. Blizzard of Ozz was not only a turning point in Ozzys' life and musical career, but it also contains some of his and Randys' best known work together such as Crazy Train, Mr. Crowley, Goodbye to Romance and the controversial Suicide Solution. Long live the King.

An incredible album just as Randy was beginning. Personally we all like it better than Ozzy's stuff, minus crazy train of course, unless Randy had lived to keep playing in Ozzy's band-just ask Amaranth!!!. Randy's band here was initially called violet fox soon changing its name to quiet riot. It's straight 70's rock before glam and heavy metal. The guitar solos on some of the tracks are even better than most of the 80's greatest like Van Halen and Metallica. Randy at this time in the band was constantly battling Van Halen at the Whiskey in California trying to out do his theatrics. If you know of George Lynch the song "mister scary" was written during the Ozzy audition and after hearing George audition Randy waiting there said to him "Man you play scary!" meaning that Randy was really impressed. So he named that song after Randy's compliment. However Randy did win the Ozzy audition. This album is simply a smoothly eloquent, elegant and rocking classic rock early glam album. If you are a guitar player this album is a must-not even just for the song structures and solos alone- its a really fun album to take a cool drive and jam out listening too.
