This CD was put out two showcase two covers. The first is a medley of Temptation eyes (by The Grass Roots) into 25 or 6 to 4 (by Chicago). It is a song that Topaz played live and Mark did all the horn parts on Guitar synth live. Fans asked for a recording of this, The second is Getting To The Point by ELO. It is a song that Mark loved and when he was learning how to use his newly acquired AW4416, he recorded this to try it out (just for fun). Everyone who heard it, loved it and asked that it be released. This was before CD Baby released singles, so there had to be a full CD. Mark got all the demos of songs that were to 'pretty' or 'light' to go on a proper Ruby Topaz CD and put them together to release these covers. One of those songs (Far, Far away), about becoming a father, has Mark's son (who was very young at the time) at the end in a moment that should touch every parents heart. There is also a rare instrumental that Mark recorded on a 4-track cassette recorder. It is a drum machine, Mark on bass and lead guitar and it's called 'Drive Me Anywhere, Fast!' That pretty much describesit!
