This was the first big hit for the Climax Blues Band, who had been recording since 1968 and released 8 previous albums. Derek Holt, who was the bass player and a vocalist in the band, spoke about this song:
“The song is about being on the road in America. ‘Looking for a sign in the middle of the night’ being about the old Holiday Inn signs, really, because the moment you saw the Holiday Inn sign, that meant you got a bed for the night. When we first started in America, we used to fly everywhere; sometimes we’d have 3 flights a day to get to any one place. The way the itinerary was sorted out, it was never very easy to get to anywhere, so consequently we used to arrive in the town, get into a car, just about make the sound check for the gig, do the gig, get back in the car, then look for a bed. Towards the latter sort of probably five years of the band’s life, we started using tour buses, so you could sort of leave after the gig, get on the bus, get a bed, drive 1,000 miles or whatever, be at the next gig being quite refreshed. So that was a really nice way of traveling.”
