The live version was released on the Royal Concert charity album in 1987 and the performance was also used as the music video. A second live recording of the track from Tina's Break Every Rule Tour with Clapton guesting on guitar and vocals was included on the album Live in Europe. Tina also did the backing vocals on the b-side track „Hold On“.

From his "August" album, quick dance-rock number with stellar support from Tina should bring this veteran the radio exposure he deserves.
