This was the Canadian singer-songwriter's first and only album. It was produced by Brian Ahern and recorded between 1971 and 1974, but not released until 1984 due to contactual problems. Apparently 25,000 copies were pressed, but never left the Warehouse. Background vocals were by Anne Murray and Emmylou Harris. In 1984 Holger Peterson obtained the album rights and it was released shortly thereafter on the Stony Plain label. Bob Carpenter passed away from brain cancer at the age of 50.

From back cover: "Bob Carpenter is a reclusive West Coast canadian songwriter. His material has been recorded by Tom Rush, Billy Joe Shaver, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Koloc, Valdy, Brent Titcomb and several others"
