Al Graham and Gerard Mason are partners in an Alaskan trucking company. They quarrel over expenses and losses. Graham has fallen for Tina Boyd, the cashier at a restaurant. Mason's wife, Janet, shows up and makes a play for Graham, and since they were lovers before she threw him over for Mason, Graham and Janet resume their affair. Mason learns of this, and Janet shoots him and forces a truck-mechanic to help her getaway. Graham speeds after them knowing there has been a landslide and hoping to prevent an accident.
Released on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Alaska's debut single with Pegamoides, this new compilation of quintessential Spanish pop icon Alaska covers her work between 1980 and 2006 with her three bands, Pegamoides, Dinarama, and Fangoria, the latter for the Subterfuge label, but misses their four albums for DRO. The standard edition consists of a single 20-track CD, while the Special Edition Box adds a rarities disc, a remix disc, and a DVD with live performances and video clips.
This was the first album that tenor saxophonist Jimmy Forrest made after his R&B phase ended. Particularly notable is that the set served as the recording debut of guitarist Grant Green; completing the band are pianist Harold Mabern, bassist Gene Ramey and drummer Elvin Jones. The top-notch group performs two ballads, "Caravan" and three basic Forrest originals, including the title cut. The music is essentially melodic and blues-based hard bop that looks toward soul-jazz. Everyone sounds in fine form.
