The album was recorded over a couple of days... I spent the first day doing a 14 hour session of laying down guitar beds to a click with my 12 string guitar, double tracking and in some cases triple layering the tracks. I also did guide vocals.
Day 2 we just started calling up people and saying 'hey, you wanna play on a track?'
I called up Chris Wilson first and then Paul Kelly and it just snowballed on from there.... everyone seemed to know someone else that might want a spot so suddenly we'd find someone like Andrew Pendlebury is making himself comfortable on a couple of tracks!
My girlfriend of the time, Helene Rosanov was on hand to take some photos of the session and a selection of these have been made available for the very first time as bonus material for this digital release.


released September 19, 1993

So many people played on this album... Paul Kelly sang a duet with me, we had Chris Wilson, Andrew Pendlebury, Craig Harneth, Nigel McLean, Dave Cambell, Cameron Gould, Brett kingman.... Dean Rochford
Craig Dohney and myself!
