In Their Words: “The record is a snapshot of where we were at the time. The entire album was recorded in two days, all live and off the cuff in my small one-room studio. It was a breath of fresh air after spending months and even years on our earlier records. We went back to our roots of growing up singing the Everly Brothers’ hits, and we think that’s why we were able to capture the songs so quickly and easily. ‘Tears Only Run One Way’ fell into our laps from a close friend, who happened to be Robbie Fulks’ publisher. We became instant fans of Robbie’s as soon as we heard his songs. The musical arrangement was done on the spot, with everyone coming up with their own parts. We especially like Marvin Etzioni’s descending solo bass line into each chorus and Greg Leisz’s masterful lap steel throughout.” — Andrew and David Williams, The Williams Brothers
