Track trivia

*The title track was later covered by Toronto surf-country band The Sadies under the title of "The Story's Often Told". The Sadies' album on which the track appears was produced by Blue Rodeo singer/guitarist Greg Keelor.
*Singer/guitarist Jim Cuddy has stated in concert that "Bulletproof", the album's first single, was his attempt to emulate the songwriting of admired singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith. He originally wrote the song to give to Blue Rodeo bassist Bazil Donovan for use in a solo project, but chose in the end to keep the song for Blue Rodeo.
