The album was produced by Richard Perry and features musical contributions from Ringo Starr and George Harrison. Some of the other musicians used on this album included Peter Frampton, Bobby Keys, Nicky Hopkins and Klaus Voormann.
The songs on this album include: Take 54; Remember Christmas; Joy; Turn On Your Radio; You're Breakin' My Hear; Spaceman; The Lottery Song; at My Front Door; Ambush; I'd Rather Be Dead and The Most Beautiful World In The World.
