From original album notes in booklet:
I’m on the left & the other guitarist, Mike Rathke is on the right. I did all the solos except for the two clean ones on “Endless Cycle” & “Sick of You.” Rob Wasserman played the Clevinger Electric upright six-string bass on everything but “Romeo Had Juliette” and “Busload of Faith” where my co-producer Fred Maher played a Fender. Fred did all the drums with the exception of “Last Great American Whale” & “Dime Store Mystery” where the percussionist was Maureen “Moe” Tucker. The Record and Mixdown Engineer was Jeffrey Lesser except on “Romeo Had Juliette” where Fred manned the boards. The album was mixed by Fred, Mike, Jeffrey & myself. The Assistant Engineer was Victor Deyglio. Bob Ludwig of Master Disk, NYC did the mastering. Equipment was handled by Frank Newberry while the production was coordinated by Shirley Divers and Jennifer Gross. Oh, the background vocals are by me & Jeffrey and on “Dirty Blvd.,” Dion DiMucci.
