Track 1:
“Strings conducted and arranged by Al Gorgoni (arranged at Mickey Leonard’s house)”.

“On “We’re Over,” “Me Without You” and “Don’t Know Much,” Barry Mann played on the Blüthner Grand Piano, which was provided by Kasimoff-Blüthner, Hollywood.”.

“This album was mixed with the use of the Aphex Aural Exciter”.

“Bob Merritt, who has given us more than his engineering talents. (Thank you) // David Latman, who has also given us more than just his time and experience. (Thank you)”.

“Our thanks to Sam Trust and Lester Sill for always being there. // Thanks to Steve Love for being a believer. // A special thanks to a lady we love, Linda Perry, for her creativity and support. // Thank you, Brooks, for making it all come together. Love, Barry & Cynthia”.
