Notes: 1) This is the solo debut of Loverboy’s lead vocalist Mike Reno. 2) Album was recorded in the early Nineties and due to be released on Sony, but it was ultimately shelved until Mike Reno himself released it as a CD via his own website www.mikereno.com. This website is not currently online anymore (November, 2011). 3) No musician credits are included in the CD album’s booklet. Lee was however one of the studio players performing on the recordings. 4) According to web sources - namely www.melodicrock.com/reviews/mikereno-renovation.p3 - other tracks were cut at recording time but eventually dropped from the final release. Same website mentions guitarist Tim Pierce as one of the original session musicians involved in the project. 5) End of track 1 is somewhat truncated. 6) Track 6 has a drop at 2:43. 7) It is not clear from the very minimal tech credits if engineer Humberto Gatica was the recordist for the whole album or only for the closing track “All I Ever Needed Was You”. 8) The only songwriting credits included in the CD album notes are for track 10.
