【SEVEN DOORS HOTEL [1983 Single Remix Version]】
The first appearance is a remix version of famous songs that have made popularity in Japan. There are 4 studio takes of this song (single in 1983, original LP, CD, re-recorded in 1985), the most valuable among them is “1983 single version”. It is recorded with the best quality in this work. Although it is a tight overall as compared with the LP version, there is a new flavor added to the masterpiece, such as the guitar solo being edited more than that, and the wind like the introduction is added to the last.

【LYIN ‘EYES [1983 Withdrawn Single Version]】
The biggest eyeball became also the title of this work! It is a take that was recorded from a phantom singles released at the end of 1983, a version whose vocal take is different from the regular album version.
This single is EUROPE collection’s most super rare. Although it was released as a leading single of “WINGS OF TOMORROW”, it is collected immediately. Although it was pressed for 1000 in total, about 100 pieces have been circulated around the world due to collection trouble. When it was sent to overseas net · auction for the first time, it is “Holy Grail of the EUROPE collection” about as much as about 150,000 yen super premium attached. Just listening to it is an extremely rare experience, but in this work it is a miracle mint quality record board. Despite non-remastering, it is recorded in perfect state without any scratch / noise.

【OPEN YOUR HEART [1984 Single Remix Version]】
This is also a treasure of “WINGS OF TOMORROW” era. Long version remixed for single in 1984. Keyboard etc. are added, fade out is late than album version, it is recorded for more than 20 seconds.

Single take that was released in 1985 just before “THE FINAL COUNTDOWN”. “Rock The Night”, “On The Loose”, and “Broken Dreams” are three rare takes only for 7 inch single released as the soundtrack for the movie “ON THE LOOSE”. “Rock The Night” “On The Loose” is an original version that is different from the re-recorded version of “THE FINAL COUNTDOWN”, and “Broken Dreams” is a hidden name ballad that has not been included in the album.
In addition, although 7 inches is the above three songs, at 12 inches it was another mixed version of “Rock The Night” (about one and half minutes longer). This work contains all 4 takes.

【THE FINAL COUNTDOWN [Mix 40 Principales]】
This is also the eyeball of this work comparable to the single “LYIN ‘EYES”! It is a remixed version for the Spanish radio station “40 PRINCIPALES”, which is also very super rare. It is recorded only in the test pressed 7-inch single, and it is a super rare board with more than single “LYIN ‘EYES” in number. It is a new excavation that is not known even to date and is more shocking than the core maniac.
Contents are also amazing. BON JOVI’s “Runaway” also had a similar remix, but it was exquisitely exhilarating enough to think that the player was broken, and the official exclusive finish. It is one take of shock that can only be heard in this work anyhow.

【WHERE MEN WILL NOT DARE [Outtake – Stereo Version]】
The installation number of “THE FINAL COUNTDOWN” outtake. It was also included in the official DVD “THE FINAL COUNTDOWN TOUR 1986: LIVE IN SWEDEN? 20 TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION (Japan not yet released)”, but somehow it is monaural. It is recorded in stereo version in this work.

【Hero [Radio Remix]】

Moreover, it records only with the highest peak sound version ever. Not only is it rare, but even when fans who do not know the preciousness listen to it, it is also a musical work in which the radiance of each era is dazzling.

本作のタイトルにもなった最大の目玉テイク! 1983年暮れにリリースされた幻のシングルから収録された1テイクで、正規アルバム・バージョンとはヴォーカル・テイクが違うバージョンです。
このシングルは、EUROPEコレクション随一の超・激レア。『WINGS OF TOMORROW』の先行シングルとしてリリースされたましたが、即回収。トータルで1000枚プレスされたものの、回収騒ぎによって世の中に出回ったのは100枚ほど。初めて海外ネット・オークションに出品された際には、約15万円もの超プレミアが付いたほどの“EUROPEコレクションの聖杯”なのです。ただ聴けるだけでも激レア体験なのですが、本作では奇跡のミント・クオリティ盤。ノン・リマスタリングにも関わらず、一切のスクラッチ・ノイズがない完璧な状態で収録しています。

【OPEN YOUR HEART [1984 Single Remix Version]】
こちらも『WINGS OF TOMORROW』時代のお宝。1984年にシングル用にリミックスされた長尺バージョン。キーボード等が足され、アルバム・バージョンよりフェード・アウトが遅く20秒以上も長く収録されています。

中身も凄い。BON JOVIの「Runaway」にも同様のリミックスがありましたが、プレイヤーが壊れたかと思うほど豪快に換骨奪胎しつつ、公式ならではの精密な仕上がり。とにかく本作でしか聴けない衝撃の1テイクです。

【WHERE MEN WON’T DARE [Outtake – Stereo Version]】
『THE FINAL COUNTDOWN』のアウトテイクのインスト・ナンバー。公式DVD『THE FINAL COUNTDOWN TOUR 1986: LIVE IN SWEDEN ? 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION(日本未発売)』にも収録されましたが、なぜかそちらではモノラル。本作ではステレオ・バージョンで収録しています。
