"I conceived of the record as a compilation of myself, over the period of a year," says Jones. "As an anthology, a collection of my songs and of what happened to me in that year." The songs that emerged from that time proved quite different to anything he had written before; 12 songs in which joy and rapture are tempered by wit and keen-eyed humor, by jubilant pop melody and rock and roll muscularity. Returning to London, he decided to set about recording. Five of the songs he had conceived as orchestral pieces, and so he assembled a 30-strong orchestra "out of friends, and friends of friends of friends." There was a saxophonist, a bassoonist, a clarinetist, some classical players, jazz, brass, a French harpist, and Lucy Mercer from Stealing Sheep on drums.
