Leon would like to thank: John Frankenheimer, who from the beginning always kept our legal affairs in order while keeping his heart and soul deep in the music; the band for their time and devotion to this project and for reviving some funky musical spirits from the bayou; Nelson Blanchard for the hours of detection and the uses of Techno Sound Studio; Steve and Wish for being good friends and making me always feel at home while recording at Dockside; Tony Daigle for going above the call in capturing our emotions on tape; Warren Dewey for helping sculpt LeRoux's sound from the start to the present; Newton Elbertson - his designs and graphics have been there since the beginning; Rhonda, Boo, and Chad, thank you for all of your help and friendship.
