The album was at first rejected by SSR, the subsidiary of Nettwerk with whom Jenssen had previously released his music, as "unmarketable". The small Norwegian label Origo Sound picked it up, and the record scored on the club circuit in 1991.[3]

At the end of 2014, Geir Jenssen launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to re-release the album on vinyl.[4]
