The Road of Rock is a rocky road, and no one's life exemplifies that more thoroughly than that of Derek Albion Smalls who celebrates his 75th birthday with a hoped-to-be triumphant return to at least one of the echelons of the rock firmament. Derek went on to acquire the coveted position of bass player in the legendary rock band "Spinal Tap", from the 1984 Rockumentary "This Is Spinal Tap". Smalls makes his return to the music world with this new recording.
