Full personnel listed on each track below.

Produced by : Ringo Starr
Recorded at : Roccabella West, Mixed at Roccabella, UK
Mixed by : Ringo and Bruce Sugar
Mastering : Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, LA.

His previous album "Y Not" of two years ago had ten tracks, this has one less and doesn't even run for half-an-hour.
On your average c.d. you will have 50 minutes of blank disc !

Of the nine tracks, two are covers ("Think It Over" and "Rock Island Line") and two are new versions of his own previously issued songs ("Wings" and "Step Lightly")

This standard CD is released in a jewelcase and comes with a scant c.d.cover leaflet containing a few tiny pictures and, a song list which includes full personnel on every recording.
The release is also available on vinyl and as a download.
Booklet photography: Rob Shanahan
Art Direction: Vartan
Design: Mike Fink, Philip Manning and Meire Murakami
