This album was first released in 2006 in Europe on the Harvey Records label, catalogue number HARVEYCD02, in time for the Autumn European tour in response to many requests for recordings of Linda, Chris, and Matt live. It was recorded at a number of different venues. Chris Simpson is on guitar, harmonica, and vocals; Linda Simpson is on guitar, woodwind, harmonica and vocals; and Matt Baarhoorn is on violin, mandolin, and backing vocals. Andrew Jackson is the narrator on Fields of Eden.
There are also three studio tracks: For the Gypsy, Moving On, and Autumn Dreaming Blues. The lineup on these tracks include Lee Abbot, Eddie Jackson, and Johnny Mearns on bass guitar; John Sheppard on drums; Will Jackson on guitar and piano; Mike Berridge on piano; and Derek Nash on sax.
The final bonus track is an achingly funny (and manifestly untrue!) poem by Linda.
The album notes include lyrics for all the songs.
The album was re-released in 2007 with a slightly different track list, and a smaller booklet.
