On the back cover of the LP Bob Koester says: “...John Hammond recently signed him [MB] to a Columbia recording pact and his first LP under his own name is in preparation as this is written...”.

Bob Koester also wrote that at the time of writing the liner notes for the LP, Sleepy John Estes and Hammie Nixon were packing to go to the Newport Folk Festival 1964. The time of writing must have been around June or July 1964. That indicates that the album in preparation must have been The Group’s recording.
