If you're a Dirt Band completist (do they exist? Eh, I guess they do.) then this CD is the Holy Grail. While BGO Records has done a wonderful job of bringing the Dirt Band's catalog to CD, they opted to pass over this album in favor of a UK-only compilation entitled Pure Dirt (which contains 6 tracks from this album and 8 from the follow-up album Ricochet). A baffling choice since that album, as noted, contains 8 songs of an album they were reissuing in that same batch of titles. As BGO grew ever closer to getting the entire catalog done (and they've made it to all of their albums up to the mid 90s) I held out hope that they'd address this issue, that this album would eventually get a belated reissue by them, but no dice.

It's never been explained why BGO bypassed this one, leaving this entry in Toshiba's Dirt Band reissue series the sole CD appearance of this album.

EDIT: Well, this album has been reissued on CD once again, and once again only in Japan as part of a 2017 SHM-CD reissue campaign.
