This was the second official live solo album to be released by Hughes (third if you include the Live In South America bonus CD that was released with Return Of Crystal Karma). It features a set-list of eleven songs, three from his 2003 solo album Songs In The Key Of Rock, one from his 2001 album Building The Machine, two from the Hughes/Thrall album, two Trapeze tracks and three Deep Purple numbers.

Hughes’ band for the gig included regular guitarist JJ Marsh, additional guitarist George Nastos (who has performed on some of Hughes’ other albums), keyboardist Ed Roth and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith. Hughes also recruited the singers Alex Ligertwood (formerly of Santana) and the late Kevin DuBrow (of Quiet Riot) to perform backing vocals.

The CD version of the release includes either one or two extra tracks, depending on the origin. All CDs include the previously unreleased song The Healer, which was performed by Hughes alone and features his guitar playing. The European version of the CD includes Change, which was originally featured on the Japanese version of Songs In The Key Of Rock.

A US edition was released in March 2005 which coupled the CDs and the concert DVD into one package.

The CD and DVD rearranged the order of the tracks from the original performance at Sound Image Studios. They also omitted the songs In My Blood and Blue Jade, the reason for their exclusion is unknown.
