The group's line-up had changed by their June 1984 appearance at the Stonehenge Free Festival, with guitarists Dave Brock, Huw Lloyd-Langton and saxophonist Nik Turner remaining, Harvey Bainbridge switching from bass to keyboards. They were joined by bassist Alan Davey and drummer Clive Deamer, although Danny Thompson deputised for Deamer on the Stonehenge recording.

The group undertook a 13 date UK tour in November 1984 to promote this album, with support from Wildfire.[1] The Sheffield University show on 27 November was recorded, and part released on Undisclosed Files Addendum (1995).

The tracks from disc 1 have been re-issued on the 2009 3CD re-issue of Levitation.
