Four tracks (Keep on Giving Me Love, Queen of Hearts, Only My Soul, Breakdown) from this album would later be combined with the tracks from the EP Snakebite from his band Whitesnake, to form the album Snakebite.
A number of other titles, written by Coverdale, were published at the time, which have yet to be released. The titles include "It Would Be Nice", "Love’s A Crazy Game", and "Till The Sun Doesn’t Shine Anymore".
