Featuring Electric Earl on vocals and guitar, recorded live to 2-track.

I recorded this album to give to my girlfriend for Christmas. (Hence, all the love songs on side two.) This started a tradition that persisted all through the next decade, doing a recording project at the end of every year. That very productive habit ended when I moved to California in 1990 and no longer had access to the musicians and equipment that I once did.

Track #1-14 recorded by Edward B. Smith at Creative Sound Productions studio.
Track #15-16 recorded at home, engineered and mixed by Electric Earl.
Recording dates: December 1980 (track #1-14), 8/3/1980 (track #15), 6/10/1979 (track #16)

The original cassette version of this album had track #1-7 (original songs) on side one, and #8-14 (cover songs) on side two.

All words and music by Earl P. Reinhalter except as noted above.
