The Europeans were signed to A&M Records, Ltd. on the strength of their demo tape.

The band was disappointed with the sales of their first album, Vocabulary, and thought the sound was over-produced. 

They opted for a live second album thinking that it would better represent their sound. The album was recorded over seven weeks and supported it with a tour.
