commentary
the studio tracks on this album were recorded in the same (various) sessions as those released on Simple soul, but didn’t get selected for that Rough Trade/Compass outing: however, being by Eddi, they were too good to ditch, so they first appeared on this ‘homegrown’ effort. They include another another Ron Sexsmith song (after his writing ‘On a whim’ for Eddi), two country tracks, (in the Your cheatin’; heart mould), Eddi’s first t.v. theme ‘Good girl’ and more great Boo ’n’ Eddi compositions. The album was picked up for official Japanese release by Universal, who dropped the two tracks which had appeared on their version of the Simple soul album and added five live tracks from a gig at Club Quattro, Tokyo on 2001-03-14
