This album comprises songs culled from the band’s first independent release, “Spirit of the West” (1984), for half the record, and material pulled from a live concert at the Vancouver Cultural Centre (1986) for the other half. The studio album material was produced by Barney Bentall in his old studio in a plywood mill, featuring special guest Dougie McLean (Scotland) on one track, and the live material was mixed by the careful and exacting Ron Obvious. The original studio album is no longer available, and is considered by some to be a collector’s item.
