1979 was a transitional year for Joan Jett. In the spring of 79, Toby Mamis, The Runaway's manager at the time, contacted Kenny Laguna, a veteran of many bubble gum hits of the 60's, to write and produce some songs with Jett. Laguna brought in Ritchie Cordell, also a 60's bubble gum veteran, to cowrite and coproduce. In August, Laguna and Cordell flew out to Los Angeles to meet with Jett, and within a few days, had formed the basis for the songs contained on this disc. Raw, spontaneous (recording only took about five days), these tracks are a document of the first sessions of Joan Jett and Kenny Laguna's prolific more than 30 years partnership.
