Duritz had been tapped to provide vocals on one track, and future bandmate David Immerglück (nicknamed "Immy") as a session musician on bass guitar.
Producing the album was David Bryson, both of whom became good friends.
Duritz has recorded solo material of his own and has collaborated with other musical acts.
He has branched out as the owner of at least two record labels, acting as his own artists and repertoire (A&R) man.
But despite having dated women for half of his life, he seems to have remained single and unmarried.
