1980年代以降、10枚前後のCDやEPを出しているみたい。 かなり曲がかぶっていたり再録音していたりでよくわからないけど、少なくても今回の収録曲の内13曲は過去に出されたことがある曲。 
"Time Marches On" was writen about Tommy Evans and recorded in 1987.  Joey was in town playing at the Beatlefest, and when he was done there, we went into the studio.  The engineer was Gordon Copely, (he was the bass player in the Lita Ford Band at the time).  I was sitting on my bed, listening to a Tom Evans tape when I flashed back to the first time I hung out with Tommy and he had his arm around my shoulder, looked me in the eyes and said, "It's a shame about Peter, (Ham), I could never do anything like that".  Man, the sadness in his eyes was overwhelming!  I felt like Tommy's soul would never get over Peter's death.  It was then that the words for this song came tumbling out.  It was really cool having Joey sing on a song about his ex Badfinger mate Tommy!  The song was the single for the compilation album, "The Best of L.A.".  - Michael Raz Rescigno 
Tom Evans について歌っている Time Marches On は1987年のシングルB面曲で Joey も参加。 同年の Best of Los Angeles というコンピ盤にA面とともに収録。その後1999年のCD Razfinger にも収録され、2004年には When Dogs Fly South というアルバムで再録音。 

この When Dogs Fly South には、Badfinger の No Matter What と Love Me Do も収録されており、今回のアルバム収録曲中8曲がここにも収められています。 
2000年のCD Razfinger にHidden Trackとして収録された Love Me Do は1993年のLiveとのこと。 
A celebration of people involved in music

We plan on recording/filming our live show for a cd and dvd release. Honestly our set is killer. We'll be performing lots of RAZ songs, Joey Molland songs, Badfinger songs, Hits that Joe Vitale has co-written, plus some solo Joe Vitale songs and more. - Michael Raz Rescigno
