Monroe revealed the first details of the upcoming compilation during an interview with “Star Radio Rock Show With Neil Jones” past March:

“I’m releasing a compilation of… It’s been thirty years now since my first solo album, ‘Nights Are So Long’, came out, so it’s like a thirty-year-anniversary kind of year. So we’re releasing a best-of of all these years of all my solo albums. It’s twenty-six songs, including the last three, and there’s five bonus tracks, including a new single called ‘One Foot Outta The Grave’, which is also included. There’s five bonus tracks, previously unreleased, and one of them is very significant. I can’t reveal yet, but there’s a big name playing on one of them, so it’ll be a nice surprise.”

The aforementioned big name is Slash, who features on a new version of the Steppenwolf classic “Magic Carpet Ride”. The previous version of the song by these fine gentlemen was heard on “The Coneheads” moviesoundtrack back in 1993. The rest of the bonuses are “Fist Fulla Dynamite”, “Simpletown”, “It’s A Lie” and finally, an explosive cover song, “Get On” by the Finnish rock legends, Hurriganes.
