He recorded it with Ernest Tubb's band, the Texas Troubadours and Western Swing fiddler-vocalist Wade Ray with studio musicians Jimmy Wilkerson and Hargus "Pig" Robbins. At the time of the recording, Nelson was a regular on a syndicated TV show hosted by Tubb.

In 1970, RCA issued an abridged version of this album as "Columbus Stockade Blues" on the budget RCA Camden label (CAS-2444).
