In 1976, legendary vocalist Mike Patto (Timebox, Patto) put together a new line-up of Boxer featuring keyboardist Chris Stainton (Joe Cocker's Grease Band), guitarist Adrian Fisher (Sparks), bassist Tim Bogert (Vanilla Fudge) and drummer Eddie Tuduri (Beach Boys).
The line-up proved volatile and short-lived, but the duid tape this lost classic of melodic hard rock in 1977, with popular producer Jeff Glixman, red-hot from his association with Kansas. It makes its long-awaited return to CD here, complete with background notes and images.

Mike Patto fronts an excellent band and they come up with some fine songs. The playing is hard and yet melodic with a degree of virtuosity sadly out of favour at the time of release.
