This was Todd's first real full-length album, and comes after a break in recording of a few years while he was concentrating on playing live. It is comprised of vocal numbers that he was performing in his band, plus instrumentals that had been "piling up" as he was doing so. It is the first real melding of vocal and instrumental material that would persist in all of Todd's subsequent releases. So you could say it's a culmination of everything up to this point.
Because of the live nature of the material, Todd elicited the talents of the drummer and bass player from his former band on these recordings. While the sound is crude compared to Todd's more recent releases, the songs, spirit and playing are all top notch!
