History

Laurie Mansworth formed Airrace. The hard rockers' claim to fame was how it featured Jason Bonham the son of the Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham. This fact and high profile touring with Def Leppard lead to a deal with Atlantic Records.

The album was produced by former Airbourne man Beau Hill (Ratt, Winger, Fiona, etc.) in NYC and the band supported AC/DC among others. The album failed to ignite sales or imaginations and the band split up, only to reappear two years hence with a revamped line-up featuring future Elegy singer Ian Parry.
