With the exception of one cut (the Byron Clark mix of "I Was Tired of Being Alone" instead of the single version of "Breakout!"), the bonus tracks appended to Straight from the Heart are the same as the ones on Rhino's 1996 reissue. Four cuts from 12" releases are added to Now, which had been reissued straight-up by Wounded Bird in 2003.
