Credits

Produced & engineered by Spot and Hüsker Dü
Recorded & mixed at Total Access, Rondo Beach, CA, October 1983
Artwork by Fake Name Graphics
Cover photo by Mark Peterson

Bob Mould - electric & acoustic guitars, lead & bk vocals, percussion, piano
Greg Norton - bass, bk vocals
Grant Hart - drums, lead & bk vocals, percussion, piano
Bob played bass on 'Turn On', and piano on 'Trips', 'One Step', 'Industry' and 'Monday'
Grant played piano on 'Trips', 'What's Goin', 'Standing', and 'Monday'
Dez sang on 'What's Goin', and other folks sang on 'Turn On'.
Whoever wrote the songs sings it, except for 'Somewhere' which Grant wrote words for.
Reoccurring Dreams' is live to track, no overdubs or funny stuff.
Everything on the record is first-take, except for 'Something I Learned Today' & 'Standing By The Sea', which started too fast.
Spot did the yell on 'Standing By The Sea', and we all threw chairs during track 'Pride'
Grant did all the stuff to 'Hare Krsna' and Bob did all the stuff on 'Tooth Fairy'.
There were only two out-takes from these sessions, 'Dozen Beats Eleven' and 'Some Kind Of Fun'.
The whole thing took about 85 hours, the last 40 hours straight for mixing.
Carducci wants another album already, but not another double LP.
