'This isn't intended to be any kind of statement of my present musical position, but at the same time it is an album which involves a great deal of me, the person, being basically a return to roots. The songs are, for the most part, three to four years old, & were written in the formative years of Van der Graaf, some of them were originally played by the band in its early days & forms. This is, therefore, an album of songs rather than musical extravaganzae, & as such is dedicated to all the people who encouragised/energised them at the time they were written, who have shed new light on them since, & all those who helped in the making of the album, directly or indirectly.'
