On January 28th, 2006 a huge fire broke out on Main Street in downtown Galesburg, Illinois. 34 West was located right next door to the blaze. Thanks to the Galesburg Fire Department, the label was fortunate to be able to recover all their files and masters for the project but it set the release date back yet again.
The final track listing is being released and features 2 previously rare and unreleased tracks from Enuff Z'nuff and Trixter plus appearances from Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora, Foreigner's Jeff Pilson and The Sy Klopps Blues band featuring members of Journey, The Tubes and Europe.

Proceeds from the CD are being given to help defray medical costs for Ricky Parent and a portion will also be given to the American Cancer Society. Parent (Sass Jordan, Alice Cooper, Vince Neil, War & Peace), drummer for Chicago's Enuff Z'nuff was diagnosed with cancer in 2004 and continues his recovery. "He has good days and bad days but he's a fighter and he's got a new perspective on life and what is really important", says Duke.
