Thanks to Bösendorfer for making the best pianos in the world, for sending one special 'girl' out to us in the desert. All songs were recorded on the Bösendorfer except "Bells for Her" which was recorded on an old upright that Phil and Eric demolished or made better I'm not sure. Thanks to Apple Computers it's Bitchin what these things can do.
