The concert was organized by Black Lion Records founder Alan Bates to the great delight of European audiences who had long wanted to see Wes perform live, but his severe fear of fl ying had kept him in the states.

Mastered by icon Bernie Grundman and pressed by Record Technology Inc. (RTI) at 33 1/3 RPM.
