The record was originally released in 1981 on the independent label Leathur Records and then self-promoted until Elektra decided that this money making machine was about to take off. Re-released and re-recorded in 1982, TFFL was an instant success and made the local boys full time rock stars. Here’s a track listing and a brief description of each:
- “Live Wire” – Mick Mars’ shredding on this only made it a classic. The old 1-2 punch if you will (VIDEO).
- “Come on and Dance” – basically a LA version of a New York Dolls’ inspired song. great backup vocals
- “Public Enemy #1” – another song about one of Motley’s favorite passtime : fighting
- “Merry-Go-Around” – awesomely creepy tune about a man in an asylum ready to come home and claim his woman
- “Take Me to The Top” – Tommy Lee’s driving beat and Mick Mars chopping blues complement Vince Neil’s howl on the Nikki Sixx lyric make this a great team effort
- “Piece of Your Action” – sexual domination backed by rock n roll bliss: classick!
- “Starry Eyes” – beautiful yet sleazy, a nice Motley type love song
- “Too Fast For Love” – of course this one rocks, it’s the title track! To sum it up, get yours before i gets mine
- “On With The Show” – a beautiful suicide note thankfully not acted on. I still get the chills on this one
