The record is a heavy blend of Afrobeat, Afro Funk, and Caribbean sounds. After the record was completed in 1979, King gave a sub-master and the album art slick to Plastic Fantastic Records to release. Unfortunately, they never released the record. Soon after Peter's return to Nigeria the record was released on the newly formed (and short lived) Grandstar Records. Because Peter had already given the artwork to Plastic Fantastic, the Grandstar pressing was released with alternate album art and liner notes. In early 2012 Secret Stash Records recovered the original art slick and master intended for release in London. This reissue is a recreation of how the album was originally intended to be released (as opposed to the alternate version put out by Grandstar). The CD pressing comes in a digipack with a booklet including the same notes and images.
