When I had the amazing experience of spending a few hours talking with Tony Banks of Genesis in 2006, I showed him my proposed track list for the album. He signed it "Thanks For Everything! Tony Banks." This is the back cover of the notebook in which I wrote down all my questions for him.

After the La Chapelle sessions, I went to record some of the tracks at my friend Mark Camilleri's studio in Toronto. in the end, the slow, soft tracks were used from the La Chapelle sessions, and all the up-tempo pieces were from Imagine Sound.
