This was Ringo’s first studio album since 1983’s Old Wave and was released in the UK on 29 June 1992 where it failed to chart. In the US it was released a month earlier on 22 May 1992 and also failed to chart. It was Ringo’s one and only release on the Private label. Although it initially received a limited European release on vinyl it was CD only in the US.
The majority of the album was recorded at Conway Studios, Rumbo Studios, Studio F, Capitol Studios and Westlake Studios, all in Los Angeles, between March and September 1991. One track, Weight Of The World, was not recorded until February 1992, again at Conway Studios. Four different producers, Don Was, Phil Ramone, Jeff Lynne and Peter Asher were used.
As per usual a variety of different personnel were used, including Harry Nilsson, Andrew Gold, Brian Wilson and Jim Horn. Two of the producers, Jeff Lynne and Peter Asher, also contribute. Strangely, the credit “Tom Petty appears courtesy of MCA Records, Inc” appears on the artwork but he’s not listed as appearing on any of the tracks!
The UK/European CD release, made in Germany, was on Private Music under catalogue number 262902 whilst the US release, again on Private music, had catalogue number 01005-82097-2.
