Originally recorded in the UK in1978 at Pebble Beach Studios, Worthing, West Sussex. Sadly, never released. due to touring in the USA 79 - 83. The original tapes were re-discovered in a box in 2020. Amazed at the quality of the recordings, which were all laid down in just two sessions, it was definitely worth releasing in CD format.
