The band wishes to thank: The Townsend brothers for their incredible support and faithfulness. The great and ever vigilant Tom G. whose encouragement, friendshipm undying devotion and hard work over the long years continues to be invaluable to us. Chris Colbert who had to fill some pretty large shoes, and did so beyond our expectations, with both aplomb and grace. Anna Cardenas for being not only patient with usm but sacrificial and generous as well. We love you. Dan Michaels for his enthusiasm and support. Frank Lenz for his worthy input, and especially for his two good legs! Dennis Grimaud for the video. Pete Jacobs for the keyboards. Mike MacLane for the "Ringo" drum kit.

Terry thanks: My incredible band mates: Greg (a rocket scientist, literally), a scholar and a gentleman, who I believe can play just about any instrument, and who happens to play guitar like nobody else. Tim (in my humble opinion the greatest Rock n' Roll bass player on the face of the earth) who explored "Bass World" on this project with passion and precision. It shouldn't work, but it does.) Ed (My faithful, underrated, stalwart and brilliant drummer and friend for 24 years). Nobody does it better. Deb, Noelle, and Andrew (my biggest fans.) My incredible family, precious friends and faithful fans (your love has pulled me through the strangest year of my life) To Andy Obrastoff in Seattle (sleep my corageous silent child... upward and onward into the hands of Jesus.) The "Late Great" Gene Eugene, who is missed sorely. Above all I thank our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for keeping all of us under The Mercy.

Tim Chandler would like to thank (with no speculation about the order, in no order at all:) m.f.c., doc, Charlie, Everyone who's ever been a member of da, everyone I've ever met, nate fenderson, terry, don montes, derri, wes leathers, greg, ed, mike pedraza, gene, steve, tom willet, dan, john schriener, fernando, charles bukowski, tom howard, butt hole surfers, gene, father gary london, my mom, choirboys, gene, chris colbert, t.w., uncle art, james ellroy, replacements, f.f., raindogs, henry chinaski, jason h. from ft wayne, and k.r. - and, still: never mind the bollocks, extra special thanks to chris colbert, to whose knowledge, possession, and lending of many effects and foot pedal/stomp boxes, i clearly owe much credit (or blame) for the racket i was allowed to make on this here recording. along those lines, i would hearby like to thank the effects and pedals, individually, and personally -- thanks to: distortion #1, the alter-nado, line 6, rat, turbo rat, that korg thing with the inter-changeable modules, and all the rest that i can't think of right now.

Greg thanks: Dennis Grimaud, Frank Lopez and Jeff Yox for 20 years of being there, Frederick P. Flesch (1916-1993) who gave me a love for music and learning. Veronica, Alison and most of all Karlyn Flesch for years of love, encouragement and understanding. We made it!

Ed thanks: My family and friends for all their support through the years... My 2 new grandsons, D.J. and Alexander for bringing new joy to my life. Terry, Tim and Greg for writing songs that always challenge me musically and spiritually (let's do it again!), Kristy for her love and encouragement and for helping me find myself. And to all of our fans, I hope you have as much fun listening to these songs as we did recording them...
