Notes[edit]

Songs, recorded on December 25, 2001. Times Square was cold, quiet, abandoned. Joe Mendelson and I were going to archive a list of songs. We recorded seventeen—here are twelve of them. When you are listening to this little disk, try to think that you are in on a secret...

Engineered, mastered, and made possible, by the talented and generous Joe Mendelson, Antenna Studios, NYC. Making this session into a CD inspired by David Poe. So many thanks to the above individuals, and also to everyone good... © Regina Spektor 2002[1]
