Singer-songwriter Justin Currie appears on this archival episode of Mountain Stage, recorded live in West Virginia in December 2007. Currie was a teenager when he founded the Scottish rock band Del Amitri in Glasgow in 1983. Soon eclipsing its DIY beginnings, Del Amitri went on to score several international hits in the '90s — including "Kiss This Thing Goodbye," "Roll to Me" and "The Last to Know" — and its videos became a mainstay on MTV and VH1.

Del Amitri played on Mountain Stage in December 1995, and a dozen years later, frontman and songwriter Justin Currie visited again, just after releasing his first solo album, What Is Love For? A gifted lyricist with a compelling voice, Currie is joined by Peter Adams on keys and accordion, as well as the Mountain Stage house band for his final song.
