The album contains four original compositions by Joe Diorio and Steve Bagby which include "Straight Ahead to the Light", clocking in at over ten minutes long, "Gong", "India", another extended song that lasts for over ten minutes and "Bagbito" which features an extended percussion/drum solo by Steve Bagby. 24-bit digital remastering by Paul G.
