Where else could the Cosmic American Derelicts record this country music album but in the country? A barn built in 1820 and located among farms in the hills of northwestern Connecticut served as the venue, providing a warm acoustic to complement the songs and performances. The Twain Shall Meet was recorded "live" (for the microphones) in a single session.
