Massy Ferguson would like to thank all the people who helped make this album possible musically and financially: Brian Olson with Spark & Shine Records, Barbara Mitchell, Rebecca Goertzel, Johnny Sangster, Geoff Ott and Jon Plum at London Bridge Studios, all the good folks at Two Sticks and Electrokitty. And big thanks to Brad Zeffren for taking this project on and pouring his heart into helping us bring this album to fruition. Well done, sir.
Massy Ferguson would also like to say a special thanks to the DJs at KEXP who made our day by spinning our tunes and making us feel like stars. And to DJ Kevin Cole, who also experienced the ‘flight from hell’ with us. Next time, no Denver layover! Also big thanks to Colin Fielding and family for taking such good care of us ‘Down Under.’ To Justin Rudge, who took care of us with gear and hospitality and is a true ‘muso’ in the best sense of the word. To Billy Cohen, thanks for the advice, support and brutal honesty.

MF would also like to thank friends and family who have supported this project and this band: Cynthia Anderson, Michelle Harris, the Monda family, the Goertzel-Mann family.

Lastly, MF would like to thank anyone who has done any of the following: come to a show, bought us a drink, said cheers with us in 5 languages, told a friend, downloaded one of our songs, bought an album, cranked the volume, listened to us on a boat in Chelan, promoted us in China, been a ‘punter’ at a Massy gig, printed out our lyrics and put them in a giant 3-ring binder, had an undying love for the song ‘Can’t You See,’ frequented the Streamline Tavern, etc.

This album is dedicated to Tony’s son Lev, who loved his father’s band, proudly wearing Massy t-shirts to school until they were threadbare and enjoying the songs that we rocked out on. He left us all much too soon.
