Phil Lynott and Gary Moore were lifelong friends and have performed two duets together: "Parisienne Walkways" in 1979, and "Out In The Fields" in 1985 (it was included in Gary Moore's album "Run For Cover"), one year before Phil Lynott's death.
While touring to promote the album "Jailbreak" in the United States, Phil Lynott was stricken with hepatitis. Finally, the tour management decided to cancel the remaining tour dates, allowing Lynott time to convalesce.
"Sarah" was written for Phil Lynott's grandmother who raised him when his mother, Philomena, was unable to do so. This song should not be confused with the 1979 song of the same name, for Lynott's daughter, included on Black Rose: A Rock Legend.
The song "Philomena" was written for Lynott's mother. "It's Only Money" was re-recorded more than 35 years later by guitarist Brian Robertson on his 2011 solo album Diamonds and Dirt.
