*** Special Note ***

Although the details are not readily available, it is reported that the Black Rose album as we know it today is not the original release. Apparently at some point after being released, it was withdrawn and some tracks were removed and others added before it was reissued. Just The Two Of Us, released on a single, was apparently one of the cuts from the original release of the album.

In 1995 Metal Blade Records in conjunction with Warner Bros. issued a remastered version of this album in the USA only. Slight packaging variations from the original release.
