About the albumEdit
The album is by The Power Station's second vocalist Michael Des Barres. This 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". There are also guitar performances by Steve Jones, who had previously worked with Des Barres in the band Chequered Past during the early 1980s.
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."
