Brad and Satchel share three of the same band members. Satchel has been folded into Brad and does not perform or record as Satchel any longer. The tracks performed by Brad on this release were recorded during the recording sessions for the band's third studio album, Welcome to Discovery Park. Greg Prato of Allmusic said, "For hardcore fans, Brad vs Satchel will be of interest. But if you're a casual fan, you'd probably be better off sticking with the studio albums by each group."
