This album was made possible by energy enthusiasm and hard graft. Thanx to Andrew and Jenny Ryan (label design, artwork and insert design and printing); Simon Sandy Hilary Titus and all at the Resource Centre (moral support and patience)
Jay (distribution leaflets and inserts artwork)
Julie for PR
Zoot, Ken, and Charlie for sleeve design
Many people, but mainly Zoot for screen printing
Many other people too numerous to mention

The bands would like to point out that Rick did all the work in a triumph of er...democratic participation.
