My Own Way to Rock

Although this album wasn't the commercial success of the debut, it did produce the hit "My Own Way to Rock," as well as fan favorites "Charlemagne" and "Never Had a Lady Before." This album was remastered by legendary engineer Bill Inglot and contains two new bonus tracks from Cummings' extensive library, which were not included on the original release. All original artwork has been fully restored to this remastered version of the album, and there are new liner notes written by Cummings himself, as well as all of the song lyrics.
