Besides the original quartet of Tim den Heijer (guitar), Niels Piay (drums), Dennis Orsel (bass) and Rob Schepens (Hammond & vintage keys), sax player Efraïm Trujillo (Ploctones, New Cool Collective) plays an important part on the album. Singer Sanne Monster (ex-Laura Vane & The Vipertones) also returns and on three tracks trumpet player Dirk Beets (Candy Dulfer) completes a JB's style horn section. Three tracks were produced by Dutch funk mastermind Phil Martin (Laura Vane & The Vipertones, Soul Snatchers). The band produced the remainder of the album using vintage analogue gear in the Electric Monkey Studios in Amsterdam, favourite among the likes of Lefties Soul Connection for its raw and warm sound.
