The Garage Tape Dayz 78–81 is a compilation album of Mickey Ratt demos recorded between 1978 and 1981.


The lineup on "City To City" was the first to perform as Ratt, though they would change the name back to Mickey Ratt.

The lineup featuring Lee, Thorr, Alford, & DeLellis would be the last Mickey Ratt lineup before shortening the name to Ratt for good,
Robbin Crosby was the first 'classic' member to join Pearcy .

Guitarists Jake E. Lee and Chris Hager, bassist Matt Thorr, and drummer Dave Alford went on to the band Rough Cutt.
