Album Notes
Recorded at Fidler Sound & Media, Jake Wood Studios, and La Casita del Sol; Mastered by Gregg McVicar at RadioCamp; Mixed/Engineered by Matt Fidler and Thomas Doyle; all songs by Thomas Doyle and Matt Fidler; cover design and art by Jill Fidler.

Billy & The Fid would like to recognize a somewhat tumultuous political landscape for its role in inspiring this album, including, but not limited to the efforts of: Gavin Newsom, Ron Dellums, Nancy Pelosi, the Governator, Bush v. Gore, Hillary Clinton, Barak Obama, Rupert Murdoch, OPEC, the FDA, the FTA, the ATF, the AP, the DoH, the DoE, the NYSE, the War on Drugs, the War on Terror and Prop. 8. We would further like to acknowledge deriving inspiration from lackluster education, endless boredom, Woodford Reserve and Prop. 215.

One thousand blessings upon the homes of the thoughtful and creative musicians who have contributed to this project: Jake Wood, Richard Duke, Joe Gardner, Jim Canzoneri, Edie Irons and Andy Fidler (so many Fidlers!). Thank you also to Christy Harrison for allowing us to use her poem “The Years After.” Last but not least, thanks to Dr. Tobias X. Featherbottom Esq. for both the endless support and posing for the album cover.
