A laid back progressive album which now interests collectors.  Les Nicol and Steve Chapman were earlier members of Distant Jim along with Craig Austin who did some session work for Coast Road Drive.  Steve Kreiger was the main writer and vocalist behind the band, somewhat in the style of Lowell George.
