BOOKLET WITH LYRICS & RARE PICTURES / NEW REMASTERED - 4 RARE BONUS TRACKS - An American hard rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee, United States.

The actual origin of the band name was a reference to the song of the same name recorded by Van Halen on their 1980 release Women and Children First.

Tora Tora started out as a local garage band then eventually got studio time when they won a local Battle of the Bands contest.

Following this, the band recorded To Rock To Roll as an independent EP. After its release the songs "Phantom Rider" and "Love's A Bitch" received extensive airplay on local radio station Rock 98.

After signing with A&M Records, they recorded their debut album Surprise! Attack in 1989.

This album charted on Billboard's Top 200 at No. 47 and featured the singles "Walkin' Shoes" and "Guilty." The single "Dancing With a Gypsy" was on the soundtrack for the film Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure later that year.

Includes: 2 original versions of Phantom Rider & Walkin', Shoes (1987). 1 Remix of Phantom Rider.

1 Dancing With A Gypsy (movie soundtrack).
