The 16-track disc features the original company that starred Essex, Frank Finlay and Sinitta, along with Nicola Blackman, Patrick Clancy, Shaun Curry, Anthony Johncock, Frank Olegario, and Simon Packham. The entire recording has been remastered from the original master tape.
The piece is based on actual events that transpired on the ship The Bounty when its crew rose up against its captain. Mutiny! was originally recorded as a concept album, which produced the hit singles "Tahiti" and "Falling Angels Riding." It was later produced at the West End's Piccadilly Theatre in 1985.
