Notes: Another Cleopatra Records tribute album, another array of guests, many veterans of other Cleopatra projects (for example, Sherwood, Baker, Davies, Lloyd-Langton, Pop, Travers, Turner and West all also appear on Black on Blues - A Tribute to The Black Keys). However, unlike many, this tribute album wasn't overseen by Sherwood, although he did do session work for it on drums (in Mar/Apr 2012). Instead, it was headed by Jürgen Engler, who also oversaw Nektar's A Spoonful of Time covers album for the same label.

This album was released as a CD, download or 2LP (LP1 side A is tracks 1-4, side B is tracks 5-8, LP2 side A is 9-12). (HP, 29 Jan 13)
