  • After the personnel changes that occured at the conclusion of the girls’ 1977 Japan tour this record shows the Runaways at the end of their existance. Starting with “Queens of Noise” the band had a formula for types of songs. For example, at least one track could be considered an anthem (Queens of Noise: title track, Waitin’ for the Night: Little Sister), one track showcased Lita Ford’s talents on lead guitar (Queens of Noise: Johnny Guitar, Waitin’ for the Night: Fantasies). The only break in this pattern is Waitin’ for the Night’s title track, which is the Runaways’ only (albeit hard-rock) ballad. For “And Now.. the Runaways!!” the anthem is Saturday Night Special and Lita Ford’s guitar exhibit is on I’m a Million. This album is not the best of the bands work, that goes to the Live In Japan LP, but this is a historically significant work considering the later solo successes of both Ford and Joan Jett.
