The songs "Country Girl" and "Slipping Away" made their debut on an official live release.

The CD was released only as a digipak, featuring a mini reproduction of a tour programme. Although a UK tour programme for the Mob Rules dates was produced, the one included with this release was for the January 1981 UK dates, which were part of the Heaven and Hell tour. The cover photo is also from the earlier tour.

The 2010 two-disc deluxe edition of Mob Rules included Live at Hammersmith Odeon on its second disc.
