XX is a little present of Toto to the fans because of the 20th anniversary of the band. This album got a selection of songs through the years that where never released before, including two original demos to get the record deal in 1977 (Miss sun and Love is a man's world).
The last three songs where recorded live at the Standard Bank Arena in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1996.

The song Miss Sun was an early Toto (audition) demo with Lisa Dal Bello contributing on vocals. Toto first released this song on the album XX. Especially for the Scaggs album Hits (1980) Toto and Scaggs re-recorded the song, again with Lisa on vocals.
