Hummingbird were a British band, formed in 1974 by Bobby Tench of The Jeff Beck Group. The band recorded three albums which were released by A&M Records in the United States of America, Canada, Australia, Japan and Europe and employed Ian Samwell as their producer. The original line-up included members of the second Jeff Beck Group, vocalist and guitarist Bobby Tench, keyboardist Max Middleton, bassist Clive Chaman, drummer Conrad Isidore and second guitarist Bernie Holland. At the start of sessions for their first album they were joined by Jeff Beck for a brief period but he did not contribute to the album and left to work on his own project. After the first album Bernie Holland was replaced by guitarist Robert Ahwai and drummer Bernard "Pretty" Purdie replaced Isidore on the next two albums, vocalists Madeline Bell and Liza Strike were brought in to complement the band.

This was, in fact, the second release by the spin-off of the 2nd Jeff Beck Group. Keyboardist Max Middleton, bassist Clive Chaman, and Vocalist, Guitarist Bobble Tench remain from that wonderful band. On this 2nd release, they have a new drummer in seasoned funk, R&B, and jazz drummer Bernard Purdie, and add guitarist Robert Ahwai. This is a solid session of funkie, jazzie rock, but the drop off from the 1st self titled, Hummingbird release, is in the songs. The primary songwriter on that 1st release was the drummer, Conrad Isadore. Without his tropical vision, style and imagery, we are left with a fairly mundane R&B Rock workout. But these guys are great musicians, and they take this so-so material and make it fun and powerful.
