Additional information[edit]

A few songs on here also appear on The Charles C. Leary, and they are apparently the same recordings of them. The Charles C. Leary appears in the same form, while "Mmplushumblehorse" has been renamed "Nice People." Miss Cain references Sarah Cain, a woman Banhart was dating at the time. "Gentle Soul" references one of his good friends in Paris who had just had a baby, and named her Camilah.
