Our first venture into the recording studio as a
band, during the spring of 1993 ,was with the intent of recording
several of our original tunes that had proved popular during the
previous few months gigging schedule.As the sessions progressed
we just carried on recording.It seemed a good idea at the time
and in hindsight we were probably right.Although most of the
material on the album features songs that were an active part of
live performances at the time, a couple of new pieces sneaked in
as well.During these sessions we found ourselves without a main
singer...Andrew Mellor being unable to commit himself at the
time.Instead vocals were handled by Barry and Patrick. Mention
must also be made of a very good singer friend of ours from
Leicester.Ralph did us proud on no less than five tracks.
When we came to rereleasing the album, it was suggested that it would be nice to add some extra tracks if they existed.After careful scrutiny in the vaults at The Basement Studio we did indeed find some unreleased material from the 1993 sessions.The end result being six new bonus tracks.Collectively the twenty tracks now available on the rerelease, which also comes with a newly designed album cover ,reflect how we sounded then...but things change,don't they? The overall feel of the album reflects the prog. rock and blues elements that have always been a feature of Cold Flame through the years.Several of the tunes found on the album have survived to the present day,albeit in modified form.These tunes include Living is for loving,Mamas blues and Snowy Mountain dedicated to The Nab...a major hillside landmark overlooking the Glossopdale valley.
