On September 1st, 1992, I got a call from Mike Varney and Ken Ciancimino. They asked me if I would like to do a blues album. In the last couple of years, I have received many letters from fans who would like to hear me sing the blues. I thought what a great idea for me to write and sing about the serious changes that have taken place in my life over the past year. I made some calls to some close friends and they came down to the studio and jammed with me. This album was recorded and mixed in the first two weeks of October, and is dedicated to all my fans all over the world. This record is just the first of many new Glenn Hughes albums to come. It's good to be back, one day at a time. /Glenn

I would also like to thank the staff at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, CA., especially my counselor, Ginny Arnold who has taught me how to live again. My recovery brothers: Marcel, Bill, Dennis, Keenan, Jim, and Mike from Pocklington Hall, my doctor Dr. Robert Tamaki, and the good people of my home town Cannock, Staffordshire, England for their love and support.
