Donnington: The Live Tracks [sic] is a semi-official live album by Saxon, being a legal release but not sanctioned by the band. The recording was made at the first Monsters of Rock festival at Castle Donington on 16 August 1980 but was not released until fifteen years later. It was re-released as Live at Donnington 1980 in 2000.

"Backs to the Wall" had been featured on an official Polydor Records release, compiled from recordings of most the artists who played that inaugural show.
