Reissued 1984 album. The eight original album tracks are supplement by a couple of bonus items from the White archives. Among the highlights are 'Land Of Freedom', which was released as a single, the fast guitar showcase 'Chinese Burn' and Snowy's favorite, the moving and hear felt 'Peace On Earth.' The album is topped by the extended arrangement 'When I Arise', a classical piece complete with strings based on the hymn by Thomas Tallis. This 'must hear' album gives an insight into crucial period in Snowy White's career when he was breaking free of his super group employers and striking out on his own.
If you like great guitar - you'll love Snowy White

"I first heard Snowy White's work on Peter Green's album "In The Skies" where Snowy played lead guitar on a song called "Slabo Day". That was such a wonderful performance that I bought this album hoping to hear more. Overall this is a really enjoyable CD to listen to. Snowy White is a diverse, masterful guitarist and certainally one of the best around. I am amazed that he is almost an unknown in America. The songs are well written and in my opinion the vocals mesh well with the music. The first song "Land of Freedom" is a great song and I really enjoy the instrumentals on this one. Minus one star for two cuts that are just slightly less intriguing than the rest. I've bought two more Snowy White CD's since this one. This is one artist that I hope will be around for a long time."
