The third album by Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel was recorded with a new line-up of the band with Steve Harley and original drummer Stuart Elliott the two remaining original members. Joining the band were accomplished guitarist Jim Cregan, bassist George Ford and Duncan Mackay on keyboards.

Alan Parsons together with Steve Harley handled production duties and the album was recorded between November and December 1974 at Abbey Road Studios and AIR Studios in London.
