Palmer is backed by The Meters and Lowell George of Little Feat. Multiple reviewers have commented that Robert sings confidently on this album despite being backed by more accomplished–at the time–musicians such as Lowell George, Art Neville and New Orleans singer-songwriter Allen Toussaint.

The album was released on compact disc in 1990.

The title song “Sneakin’ Sally Through The Alley” was covered by the jam band Phish.
