"Open Fire" was guitarist Ronnie Montrose' 1978 creative collaboration with producer Edgar Winter, who also contributed numerous keyboard tracks. Recall it was Montrose adding fiery guitar work to the Edgar Winter Group's classic "They Only Come Out At Night" album ("Frankenstein", "Free Ride"), and this time Winter returns the favor on Montrose' first solo album following the dismantling of the Montrose band. "Open Fire" really opened up Montrose' guitar playing as he let his six string do the talking on tracks such as "Leo Rising" and the blazing title track.
