On December 1, 1986 Patrick Mathè from the French label, New Rose, met Roky at the Holiday Inn in Austin, TX to record the first ten tracks on this album. Due to the fact that these tracks were recorded in a hotel room, the sound quality is not superb, but still very acceptable. The thing that is superb about this album, however, is the fact that listeners get a chance to hear Roky alone in an extremely intimate setting with his acoustic guitar, playing his own material and two inspired covers by fellow Texan musical genius, Buddy Holly. The final four tracks on the album are taken from the rare and demon-ridden 1977 Sponge Records EP, recorded shortly after Roky was released from a mental institution. Tracks - Side A: 1. The Singing Grandfather 2. The Times I've Had 3. That's My Song 4. True Love Ways 5. Peggy Sue Got Married 6. Mighty Is Our Love 7. I Look At The Moon Side B: 1. Don't Slander Me 2. May The Circle Remain Unbroken 3.The Singing Grandfather 4.Mine Mine Mind 5. Click Your Fingers Applauding The Play 6. Two-Headed Dog 7. I Have Always Been Here Before
