The album is named after England's "lost jewel": "The Imperial Hotel". In words of Robert Webb: "At last... The Imperial Hotel (originally an unreleased 'England' composition from 1975) sees the light of day! Outstandingly performed by The Samurai of Prog. A must for all my fans. (I perform on it as guest keyboard player)."
