The album is the only instance of Anne Briggs recording together with a band. The band was Ragged Robin, a short-lived electric folk outfit founded by folk musician and singer-songwriter Steve Ashley. In October 1996 Briggs commented: It was a lot of fun playing with Ragged Robin - the only time in my life I've ever worked with a group - they were tolerant of my inability to know what key I was playing or singing in, or even what chords I was playing [if any]!
