Did it come with Top Priority?

Two Hellcats we have. First one is a bonus to Top Priority CD and another one from Jinx album (track 05).
Nothin' but the Devil never been released officaly ( correct me guys ).

Must be a bonus single then (vague memories coming back to me) but being C & P 1980, I didn't know whether it came with my Top Priority (1979) or Stage Struck (1980) LPs.

I thought it had come with Top Priority (the 1979/1980 discord seemed familiar) but now I'm thinking that it came with the live album. Both sides of the single are live recordings.

Are the versions on the two reissued CDs of Top Priority live recordings? It would seem so, but it seems odd to me to add live recordings to the CD of a studio album of the previous year rather than a live album of the same year, albeit that Nothin' but the Devil (the B side of the single) might seem totally out of character on Stage Struck!

Hi I had a free single with my LP version of stage stuck this had Hellcat & Nothing But The Devil on it. I hope they rerelease this version of Hellcat sometime as it is different to the bonus track on Top Priority.

Definitely came with LP of Stagestruck. Nothin' but the devil is the same version that has been released on the Jinx reissues with the audience noise removed.
