During a break from U2 in 1994, Adam Clayton would join with Little Steven (member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band) and Jason Bonham (son of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham) to work on an album. The album, written arranged and produced by Little Steven was initially developed in 1989 and 1990, but remained unrecorded until 1994. Even then, Little Steven having been dropped from his record label struggled to find a record company which would release the album. Little Steven put the album on the back burner until he was able to establish Renegade Nation, a company that would assist artists in taking control of their own career. The first release though Renegade Records was Little Steven’s “Born Again Savage” in November of 1999. Sales of “Born Again Savage” was done through Little Steven’s website, related sites, as well as mail order, and was not made commercially available in stores.
“Salvation” was issued as a promotional single at the same time as the album. The promotional single was a CDR with a low quality print job on the CD that simply said in black text “Little Steven” and “Salvation / Born Again Savage”. Both tracks are the same as the album version. The single was packaged into a regular jewel case, and had a front and back insert.
Adam Clayton performs on both of the tracks appearing here. In the liner notes to the album, Little Steven says: ““Thank you Adam Clayton. Your bass is the anchor of this record and your friendship and encouragment got this whole thing started.” Clayton is credited on the back of the promotional single.
