Liner Notes:

Every record I've made has come back to haunt me:  clams I didn't spot the first time through; mixes where we went one of two ways, and went wrong; and finally some tunes on every record that worked out just right.  So six of these re-releases have been edited or re-mixed according to the way they feel to me today, or according to how they are now performed.   The rest felt OK the first time. -- Leo Kottke

The guitars on this record are:  Bozo, NBN, Guild, Martin 28" conversion, Whitebook, Noble, Gibson B-45, Lo Prinzi and Baldwin 12 strings; Gibson Gospel and Mark IV, Kohno and National steel six strings.
