Cole had previously played with Cochise.   This solo album made little impact, but he went on to become a significant pedal steel guitar session man.  Having already worked for Dave Edmunds and Elton John in 1971, later session credits included Nazareth and Uriah Heep (1972), Trapeze (1973), Procol Harum (1974) and Ray Thomas (1975). There were several others, too, post-1976.
