Whittaker released the album in 1971 at the peak of his popularity. It included the hit "The Last Farewell", which won Whittaker an Ivor Novello Award for songwriting. The album itself has never been released on CD and current digital versions of the album's most popular songs have been re-recordings done by Roger Whittaker in the 1980s and 1990s.
In the US and Canada, most of these songs appeared on Whittaker's 1971 album A Special Kind of Man, which was released on RCA Records. Included on the North American release were the songs "Why?", "What Love Is" and "Mexican Whistler", while "New World in the Morning", "From Both Sides Now" and "Streets of London" were omitted.
