The production of this album took place in several locations such as Peter Gabriel’s Solid State Logic Studios, Oxfordshire, the Motor Museum, Liverpool, and Parr Street Studios, Liverpool.
So to sum it all up: Joe Symes and the Loving Kind from Liverpool, U.K, One of the most exciting new bands to come out of Liverpool (according to the late Early Beatles manager/Merseybeat promoter Sam Leach, R.I.P.)
