19 of the 20 songs were recorded sometime between 1975 and 1985 by the musicians that have been in the Good Rats over the years.

Track 01 "Boom Boom" is recorded by the current line-up. These musicians are not all mentioned under "The Players". Instead they are mentioned in the booklet where Peppi is writing about the musicians in Good Rats.

Track 10 : "You ll Never Get It" first appeared in 1982 on New York's Poughkeepsie WPDH FM radio promo sampler "
WPDH Rock and Roll Volume I and II".

The booklet also contains a chronicle titled "Shakespeare Never Did This" written by Clifford Meth, Rockaway, New Jersey. Some of the chronicle is about a phone call from Peppi to Clifford. Below is an excerpt from the chronicle:
"Aren't you gonna list who plays on what? I asked the maestro before we hung up
I can't said Peppi, I don't know!"
