Liner Notes[edit]

"I'm proud of this one. Special thanks to Stephen Bruton and Mike Utley for their time and imagination (we wrote six of the songs together and worked out all of this music) and to the rest of the band—Billy Swan, Terry Paul, Sammy Creason, Donnie Fritts, Jerry McGee, and Dennis Belfield—for playing and singing so pretty. Also to David and Kent and Peggy in the studio. I think we're getting there, boys. (Get ready to beam us up, Scotty) Signed, Your Captain."
