Jack Bruce hadn't released an album since 1983's Automatic when he phoned up Scott Muni for this interview. It appears that someone from the radio show wrote Bruce a letter to track him down after a fan requested some news as to his whereabouts.
This letter coincided with the upcoming release of a 20-year retrospective of Bruce's career, Willpower, and provided a great opportunity for him to call in. In keeping with the nostalgic nature of the recording, this interview is more about Jack's past. He provides updates on Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, and even Cat Stevens. He also provides some great introductions to some classic tunes like "Politician" and "Theme for an Imaginary Western."
