Around the same time when Barry Gibb was co-writing and recording demos for Barbra Streisand as a guideline to her, (the songs are, in Streisand's version) released on Guilty) as drugs impeding his previous ability to write and even fully sing the tracks on his own record, Andy was only able to forge his performance with nearly intrusive support from Barry as he began writing songs for Andy to sing and to include on his next album.
The album was recorded in May, continuing in October and finishing in November 1979 at the Criteria Studios. "Desire" was originally a Bee Gees song that was recorded in 1978 on the sessions of Spirits Having Flown with Barry on lead vocals but was later dropped on the album. Andy's version was recorded on 30 May 1979. Related songs that was not released from the sessions, "Warm", "Back to the Wind"(both written by Andy) and "For You" (written by Barry) Andy and Olivia Newton-John had previously performed "Rest Your Love on Me" on a UNICEF show in January that year, and later she agreed to record it in the studio as part of the album track on this album. His rendition of "Warm Ride" by the Bee Gees which was an outtake from Saturday Night Fever sessions was also included on this LP. Years later, co-producer Albhy Galuten said of it, "I don't know how that got on there". While the title track and "Wherever You Are" features Andy and Barry singing together. And the ballad "Dreamin' On" closes the album.
Aside from producing this album, arranging the orchestra on some songs, played synthesizer on the album, Galuten also co-wrote "Can't Help Falling in Love" with Barry. The album also features guitar work from famous session musician Hugh McCracken as well as The Brecker Brothers, Randy and Michael.
In March 1980 the last of Gibb's Top Ten singles charted just ahead of the album's release, "Desire". A second single, "I Can't Help It", a duet with family friend Olivia Newton-John, reached the Top Twenty. Unlike the Bee Gees version of "Warm Ride", Andy's version was recorded in slower tempo and was not sung in falsetto.
The album's poor performance, coupled with Gibb's mounting drug problems, would lead to RSO Records dropping Gibb from its roster. On VH1's Behind the Music, label founder Robert Stigwood said that he was heartbroken at having to make the decision to drop Gibb, but that his behaviour gave him very little choice.
