While the songs were piling up over a long time the actual album was recorded and produced in a rush of inspiration. Within a month he recorded 15 songs on an old 4-track cassette recorder he bought in a Berlin junk shop. A good friend came over and recorded trumpets and horns adding some extra warmth to two of the nine songs that finally made it onto the album. According to Long Tall Jefferson the analogue workflow had a big influence on the production and the sound of the recording "due to the way perfection has its limits and because I had to accept and start to appreciate flaws and inconsistencies." All of that makes this record incredibly honest and stripped back.
