This album was recorded backwards. For every song, vocals and guitar were recorded simultaneously, mostly within a few takes, while allowing small imperfections to remain. Afterwards, we laid down harmonicas, shakers and claps, upright, guitjo, melodica, and back-ups, mostly in that order. Brushes were the last to be recorded. The result is the most natural and raw sound that Harley Poe has ever produced for your listening pleasure. THis recording was made to be on vinyl, and because this is the first time any of our songs have been released on this form of media, we've carefully selected our favorites, one cover, and six new ones to which you, the listener, can sing along. We did this because we are great.
