This was Batdorf and Rodney's first album. The song "Can You See Him" received the most airplay on FM radio stations. According to Mark Rodney, he did most of the lead guitar work on this song and this is his favorite song from all of their albums.

The album has been re-released on CD but is still fairly collectable among fans of the duo. Used copies in good condition usually sell for around $10.
