Alcatrazz' "Disturbing The Peace" got released a bit over thirty years ago, in 1985.

Fronted and founded in 1983 by former Rainbow vocalist Graham Bonnet, the band had started out with Yngwie Malmsteen on the guitar. When Yngwie left after two albums, the band started looking for a new guitar player.

So the next album, "Disturbing The Peace" featured a young Steve Vai who had previously worked with Frank Zappa and had just put out his "Flex-Able" solo album.
Also in 1985, a Japanese record label released "Power Live", a VHS video tape that presented Alcatrazz in concert in Japan in October 1984, also with Steve Vai at the guitar.

Earlier this year, HNE Records re-released both "Disturbing The Peace" and "Power Live" in one CD / DVD package
And if that's not enough, the "Disturbing The Peace" album includes 9 bonus tracks: an anti-drunk driving promo single, 7 guitar instrumental demos, and one Steve Vai rehearsal.
