This is the first album release from Boney M, and contains tracks recorded by Marcia Barrett with Frank Farian (before the final lineup including Liz Mitchell came in to being) some of which had been recorded by Gilla, such as Lovin' or Leavin', then along came Liz Mitchell and the rest of the album took shape, with Frank, Liz & Marcia involved in recording vocals for the album.

Initally the album was not well received, but after a summer of touring discos, Boney M. were invited on the German TV show 'Musikladen'. After their performance, the song Daddy Cool went to number 1, in Germany and the album soon after.

In certain countries the track Baby Do You Wanna Bump was replaced with Help! Help!, due to contractual reasons relating to the single release of Baby Do You Wanna Bump, appearing on a different record label to the album.
