About the albumEdit
This is an album by The Power Station's second vocalist Michael Des Barres. It was his final solo musical release before he focused primarily on acting, with roles in movies including Sugar Town, Ghoulies, Pink Cadillac, Midnight Cabaret, and others.
The Power Station member Andy Taylor performs guitar on the album and additional vocals on "Money Don't Come Easy". The songs "Thinking With Your Body" and "Too Good to be Bad" were performed live by The Power Station in 1985.
Comments by Michael Des Barres (1986):
"Everything I've done in the past has been pure contrivance, not that I don't think they were fine and cool. But on my new album, it's the first time I mean everything I sing. The album is about relationships and making them work with my friends, my wife, everyone."
