Notes: dB-Infusion is a jazz/fusion band led by Danny Berdichevsky. At time of release, the live band included Gonzalo Carrera, Lakis Economou, Ollie Usiskin and Steve Stephenson, although Economou only replaced Rob Statham past way through making the album, and Stephenson only appears on one track. Peter Banks had met Gonzalo Carrera, I presume when Harmony in Diversity toured with Whimwise (including Carrera), and there had been plans for a new Harmony in Diversity line-up of Banks and Carrera, although these plans stalled. Banks then guested live for one song with dB-Infusion at a London show and this collaboration followed.

Other guests include John Etheridge (formerly of Soft Machine), Hugh McDowell (formerly of ELO and has collaborated with iCon and Asia), John Hackett (Steve Hackett's brother) and John Helliwell of Supertramp. (HP, 26 Jul 11)
