Evert Fraterman fills in Copeland's shoes, with the addition of sax player Olaf Kubler, who I know from Passport's debut album Doldinger, as well as Can's Landed. This is a strange one.

After an uncertain start, Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland were getting to be UK chart regulars by now, and the new single unseated Dr. Hook’s MOR-pop hit ‘When You’re In Love With A Beautiful Woman’ to claim the top spot.

Andy Summers had already appeared on several Eberhard Schoener albums as far back as 1975, when The Police had yet to exist and Stewart Copeland was with Curved Air. This 1980s release contains all the material from the original Video-Magic except for the instrumental "Octagon", replaced by "Rhine Bow" from Flashback. Of course if you want "Octagon" get the original Video-Magic or the 1981 compilation Video-Magic (it's a great instrumental piece with a Pink Floyd-like feel, especially from Andy Summers' guitar work). San Francisco Waitress" has a jazzy feel, with Sting's vocals and sax from Olaf Kubler, sounding, strangely, like a precursor to Sting's Dream of the Blue Turtles. Much of the rest of the album flirts with minimalism, electronic, and classical, which comes as no surprise given the kinds of music that Schoener was into.
