The release of this recording marks my tenth anniversary in Canada. I should like to thank all of you who have supported my music, and that of my colleagues, down through the years. In particular, I want to mention those tireless organizers of festivals, concerts, coffeehouses, and all other venues for this music. While they may not have agreed at times with our musical statements, they have nonetheless defended our right of expression, and have continued to provide us not only with physical support, but with a sense of artistic purpose and creative dignity. We applaud you!

This album was recorded at Grant Avenue Studio, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, Dec. 19-21, 1980. The recording engineer was Daniel Lanois.
