Dubbed at Mission | Valencia studios. Each cassette comes with a fold out insert, individual word cards for the artist and album title, and loose leaf black tea.

This album was recorded on a four-track and hand held cassette player. The original tracks were put into LOGIC express. Minimal editing and effects processing were added. Then, the digital files were dubbed onto cassette. Finally each cassette was dubbed from the original cassette master for the final release.
