This release contains the same material as the first half of our "Greens" album, remastered and with updated cover art, plus bonus tracks.

In 2002. I found a cassette at Sunshine Thrift Store in Clinton Township, Michigan containing an hour-long audio letter from 1978. The family who recorded it had moved from Michigan to Florida and decided to fill the tape each morning with excerpts of their lives during a visit by their grandchildren. Paul and I attempted to contact the family and were unable to find them, but were charmed by their personality and started conceiving music for their conversations. Years later, Paul was finally able to find and contact Tommy, who was 16 when the tape was recorded. He was happy to hear the recording of his family again and as an added bonus, did not sue us for putting them all on an album.

Before making the album, we asked "Weird Al" Yankovic to write a motif in our notation book that we could use for a larger work. This motif was the jumping-off point for Paul's compositions.
