Thanks: Katie Chandler (for the pictures, and for support and patience); Tim McManus (for the use of his signature bouzouki sitar, with the dusty finish that his signature tone demands, for the Stylophone, and for being my favorite songwriter); Kelley and Alderman Douglas (for the mandolin I borrowed from their house without permission); Perrin Skinner (for helping with the arrangements of "Rattlesnake" and "Ridiculous Stars" and for being awesome); Rick Nuzum (for buying many of the instruments featured herein); Garrick Turner (for the loan of the Vox organ); Scott Higdon and Joshua Doten (for the Technics organ); and the following musicians (for being the best): The Prairie Willows, Post Timey String Band, TC Costello, Coral Reefer Madness.
