  • "He Died For You" is not featured in any Newsboys album, only this demo tape.
  • "Stand Up" is an early version of Stand Up for Jesus, which later appeared on their second album, Hell Is For Wimps.
  • This and Boys Will Be Boyz are the only piece of Newsboys' work to be recorded in Australia, since they came to the U.S. to record their first album, "Read All About It", but returned to Australia to record Boys Will Be Boyz.
  • Although originally extremely difficult to find or listen to on the internet, these orginal tracks can now be streamed at, including the unique He Died For You.
  • The tracks featured on this album are different recordings than the ones of the same names in later albums, even though the songs are usually nearly the same. Still, certain songs on this album feature different lyrics than their later re-releases.
