This album was the second one we did with Elektra records. It was recorded in ’79 if my memory serves. It was recorded at United Western Studios and Don Evans and I produced.
As usual we used the live band augmented with guest musicians. Garth Hudson of The Band played on some of the tracks. Unfortunately, his performance on what is now the bonus track “Dance in Deeper Motion” has been lost, at least I can't find it. We recorded live in the studio as usual and I remember we had 50 boxes of 24” tape full of takes to choose from. Garth did a lot of talking and we wasted a lot of Elektra money sitting around listening to his tales of the mythic days of touring with Bob Dylan.


This album and Meet Me at the Crux too are released by Wounded Bird records which is affiliated with Rhino and contains 7 bonus tracks which makes it a 17 song album. It was the last album I did before ‘retiring’ in 1980.
