Note: Mama Michelle quit before recording this album and Jill Gibson was hired to replace her. Gibson spent about three months as a Mama
and was recorded with the group for an album to be called Crashon Screamon All Fall Down. Then Michelle rejoined, Jill was dumped and the
album re-recorded. Some insist that Jill Gibson's voice tracks are still on the album; others say no way. See the earlier cover in the notes.
