May, 2007 marks the 300th anniversary of the birth of Swede Carl Linnaeus (also known after his enoblement as Carl von Linné). Known as the "father of modern taxonomy," this botanist, physician and zoologist laid the foundations for the modern scheme of plant and animal nomenclature. He is also considered one of the fathers of modern ecology. Väsen was commissioned to arrange music to mark this occassion, so the core trio asked their longtime collaborator and percussionist André Ferrari to help them once again.

Arthur Brown had practically owned the radio one summer with the insane hit "Fire" (1968), while Black was a former member of the Mothers of Invention, which under the leadership of Frank Zappa became perhaps the most notorious rock band in American history. These Austin sessions are more about the roots rock both Black and Brown love, and one could say they really didn't dig too far to find songs to cover, sticking to warhorses. Some listeners may find the list of titles a bit discouraging, in fact. Once past this roadblock, though, and the scenery gets nice as the musicians in the backseat find effective grooves and the two leaders keep things interesting, Brown with his original vocal style and Black with his soulful drumming.
