The fall of 1979 brought to a close Boston's first tour of Europe. It also marked the end of two years of touring to promote Don't Look Back, Boston's second record.

The year 1980 began with uncertainty as to the bands future due to ongoing conflicts with its management and record label. Faced with a long hiatus, Barry began writting songs for what would be his first and only solo album.

The album came together and was released in the summer of 1980. It was well received and reached the Billboard Top 100 chart. Unfortunately, ongoing problems between the band Boston and the record label and questions about how the solo record was geing promoted, resulted in the record being dropped by the label.

The album was out of print for many years, then re-released by Razor & Tie in 1996. The album was remastered in 2010 by Rock Candy.

The band consisted of:

Barry Goudreau - Guitars, Bass & Vocals
Brad Delp - Lead Vocals
Sib Hashian - Drums & Percussion
Fran Cosmo - Lead Vocals
