Joseph F. Laredo writes in the liner notes, ""Sunrise" is the perfect title track for this collection of live performances by Robben Ford, because these early recordings capture his special wizardry at a point in time when the music world was just beginning to sit up and take notice. The elements of jazz and rock-influenced fusion that flavor his burly, blues-based guitar style were there from the beginning, and it is this versatility that has allowed him to thrive in so many different settings over the course of an enduring and influential career. Ford's light has always shone brightest as leader of his own combos, particularly in live settings, where there is a palpable energy that invaribly brings out his best work. The title track, with its religious and mystical overtones, and "Miss Miss" are two Robben Ford originals that make for riveting listening." "Sunrise" includes three instrumental tracks, "Oh Gee", "Eighty One" (with Ford on sax!) and "Miss Miss". The legendary Jimmy Witherspoon provides guest vocals on two tracks.
