Shelby Lynne and Willie Nelson visited The Village (West L.A.) to collaborate on a Barbara Mandrel tribute album for the Sony label. Brian Harrison engineered, with The Village's Jason Wormer taking over tracking duties when Harrison moved to the other side of the glass to play bass. Also assisting with the session was Jim Monti.
Lynne and Nelson worked in The Village’s Studio A, which is equipped with a vintage Neve 8040 console. The sessions were tracked to 2-inch tape and to Pro Tools and mixed down from 2-inch to half-inch tape.
After the session, Lynne and Nelson decided to stay on for a few extra days to collaborate on some additional tracks, which may be included on Lynne's next release on the Lost Highway label.
