Greatest Hits was reissued in 1993, featuring two new songs recorded with original lead vocalist Dave Bickler, who left the band in 1983 due to vocal issues. In the booklet that came with the release, 1984-1988 vocalist Jimi Jamison is only briefly mentioned in the liner notes, and Bickler is credited as being the lone vocalist in the personnel section. Half of the songs contained on this release features Jamison on lead vocals.[2]
