Stradlin first sent an email to his website admin, Will Vilers, on 5 November 2007 saying '"fire, the acoustic album"...It was recorded in California this Summer . Its all acoustic... very basic recordings, 2 guitars with one playing slide..... Rick and Taz play on some of it. JT played bass on it, and percussion. He also mixed it in Dallas at Nomad Studios. Gary Long mastered it at Nomad as well. It was a fun album to make. There are 2 songs i co-wrote with an old friend of mine.... Timo Kaltia [guitarist/songwriter] He lives in UK, the songs are "Box" and "Seems To Me"... The writing started with those 2 songs and I took off from there. I'll send in cover photo...........enjoy. cheers. izzy .......... I`ve sent music to Tunecore so should be live on Itunes in November. Take care."' Samples of the songs 'I Don't Mind', 'Infrastruk' and 'Listen', along with the email were posted on Stradlin's website www.Chopaway.com. On 19 November, the website announced the full tracklisting.
