    "Basically, the album came about because I was in financial trouble, and I went to see Pete, not to ask him for anything, just to see him socially," said Lane.  "Obviously, we talked about each A painting I did in high school.  Hey, maybe I couldn't paint, but at least I had taste!other's state.  Mine came up and he said, 'Well, we've talked about working together in the past.  Why don't we get an album together?'  I said, 'That would solve my problem.'  It did."  At [producer Glyn Johns'] suggestion, an all-star lineup of musicians was assembled.
    Lane had about half an album of material already composed; Townshend had a few songs of his own ready.  According to Lane, the sessions were "quite funny.  A lot of rowing.  Me and Pete, we love each other a lot, but we rub each other up the wrong way, as well.  He's a much bigger fellow than me-- he's got a longer reach than I have."  Townshend wrote production notes which capture the flavor of the project:
    "Sometimes Ronnie and I would talk about life.  That would mean Ronnie insulting me and me hitting him.  Sometimes Eric Clapton would come and play.  That would mean Ronnie insulting him, Eric hitting him, and then falling over.  Glyn and Ronnie often discussed Ronnie's songs.  That consisted of Ronnie trying to keep Glyn in the studio till three or four in the morning while he insulted him."
    Lane thought Townshend next to impossible to truly collaborate with.   "I couldn't make out why we didn't spend an hour or two an evening or two to write a song together.  I've got a few ideas.  Pete had a few ideas.  My ideas weren't finished- things like that.  And vice-versa.  So, I said, 'why don't we get together and write some things?'  He turned around and said, 'What?   And split the publishing?'  I was floored.  I never brought it up to him again."
