First time on CD for this 1987 album with tracks produced by Jeff Lynne, Ry Cooder, Paul McCartney and Ann Dudley. The album features material by the producers and Eddy himself. Digitally remastered and slipcased with new liner notes.

With some great musicians with him, either accompanying him or producing some of the tracks, he could not go wrong. Starting off with "Kickin` Asphalt" a hard rocker reminiscent of the early days, followed by "Rockestra Theme", Paul McCartney plays an integral part in this recording. Then one of my favourite tracks by anybody, ever, "Theme For Something Really Important", a beautiful lush slow-paced melodic tune with sterling accompaniment from George Harrison.
"Spies" a rather gimmicky track with all sorts going on in the background. Then there is "Blue City" a slower thought provoking tune, followed by "The Trembler", part written by Ravi Shankar, however this is a sitar-free zone. "Los Companeros" has a rather westernised feel about it. "Lost Innocence" follows another slower paced track which Duane handles so well. "Rockabilly Holiday" is much more up tempo, probably the most commercial track of all. Then we have "Last Look Back" a quieter finale only spoiled by the addition of two longer versions of "Spies", with added noises and "Rockestra Theme", with someone asking about their dinner!
On the whole a very good CD. Worth 5/5 for that one track alone. Next time for a bonus track it would be nice to have something completely different, do you agree?

What's more it's a good album with excellent input from other masters inc. George Harrison. McCartney, Lynne and Ry Cooder.
There are some excellent tracks inc. my favourite the underrated `Theme for Something Really Important' which the late Jet Harris featured in his live performances but never quite got that resonating trademark twang.
There are other good tracks such as `Rockabilly Holiday' much in vogue with `Tiger Love and Turnip Greens' from a 1958 album.
This like the recent `Road Tip' represented at the time a welcome return to the studio for an original album by Duane.
