Saturday Nights Background Vocal Arrangements were based for the most part, though not entirely, on compositions spawned in the twisted, yelping, whooping (yet still Immerific) mind of David Immergluck, (whose Immerfic-ness was aided by some timely recording help from Robert Hawes at Neptunes Broiler Studio in LA), but everyone else helped out too, albeit with less actual "spawning"

“Anyone But You" Brass Section Composed, Arranged, and Played (off the top of his head, at the last minute, without the use of any actual Brass) by ad (w/some Immerific inspiration)

Tour Manager, Maker of the Tea, guy who generally keeps it all together, and all-around stone cold killer, Tom Mullally
Studio Road Tech Crew, Chip Carter, Kory Carter and AJ Srybnik (for a little while) but mostly, AND ALWAYS, the great and powerful (and utterly indispensable) Billy "Sweet William" Thomson

Executive Producer, Gary Gersh

Adam - I mostly just want to thank my family (mom, dad, Nicole, Mark, Dylan & Sam) and all my friends. Y'all know damn well who you are. I also really want to thank Gil and Brian and James for understanding me and for sticking by ourr vision for this album in the face of pretty much universal disapproval. Records SHOULD be what they're MEANT to be. Everything else is, well, someone else's shite record. I want to thank Millard for just being Millard (pal, you are the joint), Lisa LeBarre & Alicia Suarez & Ehud Lazin for caring so much for so long and Ryan Adams, Dave Gibbs, Chris Carrabba, and Ryan Ross for. well, just a lot.

Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings is dedicated to Selma Feldman, "Jonny Legs" Comras, and Kim Ward, the three people in my life who'll never get to hear it. The world would be a much grayer place w/o grandmas and bootleggers and angels and it's a hell of a lot duller w/o the three of you. Ya got no idea how much I miss you. so much that I forgot there was such a thing as a summertime until New York City and a New Year came along to remind me. Maybe this one WILL be better than the last...  

Charles Gillingham would like to thank Nikki, Dash and Josie Gillingham.
