There exists a mispressed version which contains the Side B of "Burn" on the Side B, however the labels are properly printed.

Ritchie Blackmore was not a protagonist on this album, due to a series of personal problems, added to his dislike for the funk/soul music that this album had.

Ritchie suggested that they record a cover of the Quatermass song "Black Sheep of the Family" for this album, but this was turned down. Ritchie ended up covering this song on Rainbow's first album.

Recording information:

Recorded at Musicland Studios, Munich in August 1974.
Mixed at The Record Plant, Los Angeles during September 1974
