One night, many years ago in Detroit Michigan, we (BC) began a routine soundcheck when Blam! the power went off. The venue staff eventually restored power but we were presented with a new problem. 
In an adjacent building was a local radio station, pumping out its tunes, unfortunately through our backline. This time the venue staff were unable to work their magic. So, we decided to play the gig acoustically. Completely unrehearsed. It was an adventurous gig but a hugely successful one, but demonstrated the importance of being able to play songs that worked on an emotional level, whether electrically or acoustically. The power of a good song does not necessarily come from a wall socket. 
Unfortunately, that particular gig was not recorded, but the selection on this CD are from a variety of sources, some live, some radio and studio. The unplugged concept was something that BC engaged in long before it became hip. It was the perfect promotional tool. To go to radio stations and perpetually talk about yourself was a chore but became a little more bearable when 95% of an interview was an acoustic session. 
The title of this album is dedicated to that night in Detroit Michigan. It was definitely ONE IN A MILLION.
