Produced by Jerene Sykes for Memphis Records Production
Jerene does the Producing, which is to say she has that sixth sense of knowing when it's 'Right' also, she does the 'Balance' part of the mixing. She also has the glue to which I stick. One could say both musically and personally , 'No Jerene, No Keith'. She is my one true love.
This time I wrote all the songs except for "In Between Lies", which was written by John Hampton and me. All the songs are published by KEITH SYKES MUSIC, BMI.
My band, The Revolving Band, and I performed all the Song. We are :
John Hampton : Drums, Percussion & Backing vocals
Mike Crews : Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar on "Hangin' Around' and the second half of the lead on "Love Shines Bright" & Backup Vocals
Mike Brignardello : Bass, Bass & More Bass
Keith Sykes : Vocals, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar & a little Farfisa here and there
Also 
We had honorary Revolver Jody McCarthy sing with Crews on "I Couldn't Love You Better"
And
Roving Revolver Greg (Fingers) Taylor played Harp on "Buying A House (no, no, no, no, no)"
Plus
Guest Star Rosanne Cash sings with Mike Crews & John Hampton on "Buying A House (no, no, no, no, no)
Now
Joe Hardy helped John Hampton get the drum sound ; and Jerene Sykes ran the controls when we cut the basic tracks. Other than that, John Hampton did all the technical recording and mixing.
We Recorded & Mixed at Ardent Studios, Memphis. Thanks to John Fry for Building C Studio so we didn't have to leave town to mix.
We Mastered at MCA Whitney Recording Studios with the wonderful Steve Hall.
