The cover art for this album was originally the original concept album "Never Say Die!" (1978) by Black Sabbath, but Sabbath chose another cover. The cover that remained unused was given to Rainbow.

Graham Bonnet says that work on this album began when he was still in the band, he even recorded the vocals on "I Surrender", but Graham left the band and was replaced by Joe Lynn Turner.

The title of track 5 is a mistranslation from the German. The correct translation of "Maybe Next Time" is "Vielleicht beim nächsten Mal", which was corrected in later releases.

In the lyric sheet, the title "Can't Happen Here" is in quotations unlike the other tracks, but the quotation marks aren't present on the back of the record jacket.
