This is the only album by Queensland country music band Moose Malone. Led by veteran guitarist/pedal steel player Jimmy Brelsford, who had been active in bands since 1964, including a period with Bay City Union in 1968, the band began life as a trio "Moose Malone & The Mohairs" in 1975. They soon shortened their name and added players to become a full band, which became very popular in the north.
Heavily influenced by the US West Coast scene, most notably Commander Cody, Moose Malone scored a deal with RCA records and this album, and single of the same name were issued in October, 1977. The album was not a huge seller, but it led to them being named Queensland's Best Country Band of the year as well as winning the Tamworth Cup.
They then moved to Melbourne in 1978, issuing 2 further non-album singles "Two For The Show" in October of that year and a final one "What are You Doing at the Same Party" in 1979.
However they kissed their record deal goodbye after they turned a record company reception for visiting fellow RCA recording artist, John Denver into a riot.
The album covers a wide range of country-influenced styles, from electric bluegrass to country rock with some folk influences.
