Gail produced and released this, her favorite album, in 1990. Jimmy Bowen, who had been head of Warner Bros. Records as well as MCA, was now running Capitol/EMI. Gail had recorded most of these songs as demos for her publishing company. When Jimmy Bowen heard them, he gave her a budget and the go ahead to turn it into an album. Gail was also given total control of producing the album including the finished artwork. Gail's old friend Virginia Team recommended two young photographers to shoot the album cover. Gail asked for the photos to be taken on the roof of Castle Recording Studios in Franklin, Tennessee.
Kevin Welch and John Hadley wrote the first single, entitled Happy Ever After, which just missed the Billboard Top 50. Gail had lost momentum at country radio, having changed her musical identity with Wild Choir, and many of the newer, younger radio programers were unfamiliar with her name and music.
Her second single, The Other Side Of Love, was released during the same week, and on the same label, as Garth Brooks' single, Friends In Low Places. Needless to say, Gail's song didn't receive much attention or promotion from the label and went virtually unnoticed.
One of the most impressive songs on this album, One More Night With You, was written by Gail's older brother, Ron Davies.
Although hard to find, it occasionally turns up in Europe where most of the surplus was sold to an overseas distributor. You can contact vintage record stores like the Great Escape.
