In the liner notes for the CD Jay writes "The biggest thank you goes out to you, the people who hail me out in the street & support Jamiroquai, all around the world but particularly in London, you're all a bunch of diamonds. I hope you dig this new stuff. Let's get down & boogie in '97. Thanks to all the people who adorned themselves with the Buffalo Man. I'm flattered!"
