|Wendy & Lisa chronology|
Five of the tracks on the album were co-written by Bobby Z., Wendy and Lisa's former colleague from The Revolution, who also co-produced the album with the duo. Wendy's twin sister, Susannah Melvoin (an extended Revolution member herself) co-wrote the track "Honeymoon Express".
The album, released in the United States on August 24, 1987, was not a success in the US, though it reached the UK top 100, peaking at number 84. The UK and European release featured different cover artwork to the US release.
The album contained several singles, including "Honeymoon Express" and "Waterfall" (which was re-released two years later as "Waterfall '89"). "Sideshow" was also released as a single in the UK and Europe. The track "The Life" was re-recorded in the 1990s when it was retitled as "This Is The Life" and produced by Trevor Horn. This version was included on the number-one hit soundtrack album of the film Dangerous Minds (1995) and released as a single in Europe.
The album was reissued in the US in 2006 by Wounded Bird Records, featuring four bonus tracks including "To Trip Is to Fall", which was originally a 12" B-side track. The album was reissued in the UK in 2013 by Cherry Pop Records also featuring four bonus tracks, though two of the tracks differ from the US reissue.
