All vocals and most guitars by Martin Newell.
Extra guitar by Carl Seager on tracks 1,2, and 9.
Basses by Carl Seager except tracks 3 and 6, which were Martin.
All drums by Carl and yes, it's a real kit.
Sundry electric organs and percussion by Martin.
No jazz chords were hurt in the making of this album.

Carl Seagerは、Martin Newellが1973年からヴォーカルをつとめたコルチェスターのグラムロックバンドThe Mighty Plod結成当時のギタリスト(のちPaul Hartと交代するためNewell在籍時とは重ならない)。

鍬をギターに持ち替えたサイケデリック・ガーデナーNewellの立ち姿を写したジャケット。Newellの十八番Mulberry HarbourにStella and Charlie Got Married、 おとぼけドゥーワップのWow! Look at That Old Man、 気のおけない女友達との楽しいお茶の時間が目に浮かぶA Summer Tamarind 。
深い喪失感の漂うYou Made It RainはSyd Barrettへの追悼か。
