It was recorded on August 19 and August 20, 1988 at Anderson Fair, a Houston, Texas club long known for featuring folk artists in an intimate setting. Griffith mainly performs live versions of songs from her previously released albums, but adds in a couple of new ones: "Deadwood, South Dakota" and "I Would Bring You Ireland".
