Affectionately referred to as "THE U.A. E.P.", this is where the recorded career of Christopher Milk properly begins. Co-produced by JOHN MENDELSOHN and JOHN GUESS (who would apparently go on to a fruitful producing/mixing career in the field of country music), there are many who consider this their finest moment.
The packaging was beyond deluxe, featuring a gatefold sleeve (featuring fine photography from NORMAN SEEFF), a mini-poster (replete with glowing words of praise from RICHARD CROMELIN and BEN EDMONDS), and an inner sleeve featuring photos and factoids on the then-current version of the band.
Ever since the birth of Christopher Milk in the dorms of UCLA at least two years prior, there were personnel changes aplenty. In fact, even by the time that this E.P. was released, drummer TRES FELTMAN was being replaced (by GEORGE DRAGOTTA, pictured above and in the accompanying photo) and MR. TWISTER was unceremoniously being shown the door. DONNIE ALVARADO would also come to part ways with the band before their next recorded effort, "Some People Will Drink Anything".
