With that success and the requests for a CD, the guys went back in the studio and recorded some new tracks.

It was recorded live on a 2 track DAT and then converted in the studio. Two of the original tracks from the "Someday You'll Understand" casette demos ("Three of Us In A Boat" & "Someday You'll Understand") made it onto their first album, and those 2 songs were produced by Keith Hays.
