* Mike Hutchens : "Before the Alliance, All four of us were in the Jazz fusion band
   'Montage' here" in Nashville, which was formed in 1976.
   I did not play on these demo recordings listed above, nor did any of the other
   members of the Alliance to my knowledge. Peter called me during their recording and
   asked me to come up and replace all of the solo's because according to him 'we can't
   find anybody that plays like you can'. Unfortunately at that time I had just gotten
   married and was flat broke and couldn't afford the plane ticket so I had to let it go.
   We did record a 4 song demo here in Nashville with all of us playing on it. (including
   Stan Penridge)".

Produced by Stan Penridge.
Recorded late summer / fall 1984.

further details unknown.
