Two singles were released from the album in the U.S., "Hold Me" and "Koo Koo". "Love on a Blue Train" was the first single released in Japan. The album is notable for its Latin influence and prominent presence in this hybrid of jazz, rock, funk and salsa. The video for "Koo Koo" shows Sheila dancing with Cat Glover.
The album has the earliest recorded appearance of members from the group Tony! Toni! Toné!, who Sheila E. attempted to bring to Paisley Park. Almost a decade later, in 1996, she appeared on their final album, House of Music.
