The history of Summer Wine starts in the early-60s with Tony Rivers and the Castaways then through the second half of that decade with Harmony Grass. In 1970 Tony Rivers and Castaway member John Perry were working regularly providing harmonies on numerous artist recording sessions.

During the course of this work, they met up with Ray Fenwick (fresh from Tee Set and Spencer Davis Group) and producer extraordinaire Mike Hurst and recorded a version of 'Why Do Fools Fall In Love?' which was released under the name Summer Wine. The single made the USA Top 100.

Between summer 1971 and summer 1972 the band continued to record even though it was never their intention to perform the songs live. Two other singles were released but, as usual in those days, no hit meant no album.

The tracks are released for the first time on CD. It is an opportunity to enjoy some of the best UK harmony from the early-70s featuring some of the best musicians.
