Special thanks go to Sacha Fassaert, who opened his studio to me and spent many afternoons helping me record this album.Special thanks also go to David j. Taylor, who did so much more than just mix and master this album, providing a welcome counterbalance to my nascent efforts as producer. Thanks to the many musicians who played on this album, especially those pals who donated their time and talents, and particularly Sacha and Regan, who played on almost every track.
