Background: Before joining Ozzy Osbourne’s band, Randy Rhoads was a founder of Quiet Riot.  The band landed a recording contract with CBS in 1977, but the label opted to release the group’s first two albums only in Japan.

Rhoads left shortly after the second album came out and the band broke up.  They reformed a few years later with a new guitarist and became somewhat famous in the 1980s.  Rhoads died in an unfortunate accident involving a bus and and airplane in 1982.

Allmusic.com gave Quiet Riot II this review:

The second of Quiet Riot’s virtually forgotten late-’70s albums for CBS Japan, the appropriately named Quiet Riot II would also be their last with founding guitarist Randy Rhoads. Released at the height of disco mania and very hard to find in America (the band’s own L.A. fan base had to buy it on import at the time — bummer), it was certainly a much more confident effort than their amateurish debut of a year before, but it still paled in comparison to the future sonic and commercial achievements of the mid-’80s QR, and especially Rhoads’ work with Ozzy Osbourne. …Most interesting of all, however, these tracks show singer Kevin DuBrow and Rhoads truly coming into their own. The first displays growing confidence to go with his already potent pair of lungs, and the second is already developing his idiosyncratic six-string style with the first touches of the classically inflected virtuosity which would make him a legend two years later.
