Mark Nichols, for your superb talent and legendary patience. Thank you for translating a kooky premise into truly inspired music.
Steve Fisk, for throwing a lasso around a ton of unruly elements and pulling until it sounded right, as you always do.
Shenandoah Davis, for six years of insisting this record was worth finishing and that only a fool would give up on it.
Aaron Huffman, for all of it.
