Hard Volume is the second album by the Rollins Band. It was released in 1989 and reissued with new tracks in 1999. The original CD release contained a 32 minute jam on the Velvet Underground outtake "Move Right In" entitled "Joy Riding with Frank". The track was recorded live in Linz, Austria during the 1988 tour. The 1999 remastered edition replaced this track with six studio tracks: three from the album session at Echo Sound in Los Angeles on December 1988, and three from a demo session recorded in July 1988 at Graphic Studios in New Jersey.
