This album was Philip Bailey's first solo album that was released on in 1983, right after the super R&B/Pop/Jazz/Funk group Earth, Wind & Fire took a break from their longtime success (and disappointing sales from the Electric Universe album). This album was produced by George Duke for George Duke Enterprises, and it features musical contributions from Nathan East on bass, James Gadson & Ricky Lawson on Drums, Paulinho da Costa on Percussion, George Duke on keyboards, plus horn arrangements by Jerry Hey & the Seawind horn section.

The album was produced by George Duke. The trademark guitar plucking can be her throughout. But the star of the show is Philip Bailey singing in his wonderful high falsetto. I especially light "It's Our Time" featuring Philip with Denice Williams. Denice has her EWF influence with her solo release "This is Niecy", which has Maurice White and Charles Stepney. I understand the songs in the album were meant for Philip Bailey. So it is a treat to have both of them singing together in this duet.
The song "Vaya" is the Philip Bailey we are used to with the wonderful high falsetto background vocal harmony.
Not all the songs feature high falsetto. "Desire" features Philip's nature vocals. Kind of a scratchy vocal tone. He blends the high falsetto as well quite well.
The CD sounds much better than the harsh sound of the LP records.
For a solo performance from such an experienced and world wide toured vocalist, this is a wonderful album that showcases Philip Bailey's talents and is recommended to EWF fans.
Along with the songs, "Trapped", "Your Boyfriends Back" and "Viya" are more songs that are equally great. If your a Phillip Bailey fan, then you want this CD. It's that simple.
I have the original Album, and I have the CD too. That tells you exactly how I feel about this project. It is a classic.
