Featuring ten musicians from all parts of Iowa, this LP was originally recorded in 1985 at Bird-On-Fire Recording Studio in West Union, Iowa. These talented folks had become “good friends” of the Memory Brothers during the years that Doug & Kevin toured the Upper Midwest.

The artists featured on this album are:

Brenda Kowalke (Nemaha, Iowa)
Ken Netten (Orange City, Iowa)
Patty Cross (Corning, Iowa)
Larry Crandall (West Union, Iowa)
Julie Schutte (Postville, Iowa)
C. Edward Hutpon (Des Moines, Iowa)
Don Traeger (West Union, Iowa)
Cheri Kothenbeutel (Marshalltown, Iowa)
Don Eberhart (West Union, Iowa)
Darwin “Lefty” Schrage (West Union, Iowa)

All backing instrumentation and harmony vocals were supplied by Doug Koempel and Kevin Conner (the Memory Brothers.) And Kevin joined with Julie Schutte in a vocal duet on “Islands in the Stream.”

Shortly after this record was released, an album release party was held in Ames, Iowa where all the album participants performed their respective songs, mingled with fans and signed autographs. A good time was had by all! Afterwards, the band WICHITA performed for the audience’s listening and dancing pleasure.

For thirty-six years, this album had only been available as vinyl or audio cassette. However in December of 2021, it was remastered and is now available in CD format.
