In November 1977, after completing a six month world tour, Rory Gallagher and his band flew straight from their last show in Japan to San Francisco to begin working on a new album. Unlike his previous records, he didn't produce the album himself but he worked with Elliot Mazer whose claim to fame includes his work with Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin.
The sessions grew tense however, as Gallagher wasn't happy with the mixing process, describing them as 'too complicated'. By the end of January 1978 he shelved the whole record and broke up his band of the past 5 years. (With a new band he re-recorded these tracks to be released on the album Photo-Finish later that year.)
Rory said in 1992 he hoped the original recordings would surface one day but only if they were remixed. This has recently been done by Daniel Gallagher, Rory's nephew. Apart from the studio album, this release comes with another fabulous discovery, a blistering live album taken from four nights at The Old Waldorf, San Francisco in December of 1979.
