The musician, producer and arranger Dexter Wansel explains the production of this album: "Jack Faith, who passed away some years ago, and I, executive produced this album together. He was a wonderful arranger and kept me on my toes when I would write my arrangements. Ha ha ha. This particular song I composed in an effort to blend a funky groove, along with synthesis, and orchestral sounds. On this particular track there are 3 synthesizers: Oberheim 4 voice, Polymoog, and of course Arp 2600v. And as I remember, I recorded the track with the rhythm section, string, harp and flute players first. Then I added synthesis."
