Comments: (*****) Bill Bruford's first solo album. The group assembled would become the Bruford band, who released further albums and toured.

In a Feb 2016 interview, Berlin explained how he became involved: "Patrick [Moraz] mentioned to Bill Bruford about this great guitarist, which he is, named Ray Gomez and I was playing with Ray Gomez in Carmine Appice's band. So, Bill came to America to check out Ray. I was the bass player and Bill ended up hiring me for his band." (HP, 13 Apr 17; thanks to John Sowalsky for providing information)
