According to his son, Berry started recording these tracks in 1991 after his burned studio was back to function. Berry played all instruments including the use of a drum machine. Overdubs and mixing were done at Four Seasons Studio, St. Louis by 2001. Later the original recordings have been overdubbed in part using musicians from Berry's St. Louis band at Casa Del Torretta in 2013. During 2015 and 2016 the final edits to these recordings were done in Nashville including overdubs by some guest artists.
