This record reinforces John’s reputation as “an artist in music and words.” Instead of releasing singles, he made exhibitions of artefacts and wrote customized songs. He also made a short film for each track. He worked with Ray Charles’ producer Steve Forward and some remarkable classical musicians. Experimental recordings were made of unusual combinations of instruments, giving the artistic colour and width of an orchestra.  Musical sections were then cut up and dropped back into different parts of the songs like samples.
