Recorded and mixed by the renowned Justin Guip, known for his work with Hot Tuna and Levon Helm, and mastered by the gifted Alan Evans of Soulive, the album boasts an impressive lineup of songs. Highlights include instrumental versions of The Grateful Dead’s "Lost Sailor," Otis Redding’s "Hard to Handle" featuring the legendary Jorma Kaukonen, a Harry Styles track, and many others. This eclectic mix demonstrates the band's ability to bridge genres and eras with their innovative arrangements.

Guitarist Dave Ruch shared the inspiration behind the album: “It was actually my son who suggested a full album of cover songs! We’ve always enjoyed reinterpreting songs in our unique organ trio format, and our live shows have featured a variety of covers. This album was a joy to create.”
