With Mason having left Blue Thumb Records in 1973, his old record label were keen to cash in on him one last time as he signed a new contract with Columbia and started work on his next album. Blue Thumb put out the live album Dave Mason Is Alive! without his permission. However they were obviously struggling to find material to release, as two of the recordings had already appeared on Headkeeper. Though the circumstances behind its release make it a bit of dubious addition to Mason's discography, it's still a fine live album, showing Mason's talents as a guitarist, singer and bandleader.
