International Harvester emanated from Pärson Sound and later became Träd, Gräs och Stenar ("Trees, Grass and Stones"). Member Thomas Tidholm on the recordings: "We talked about making the music stop and stand perfectly still. And that did happen sometimes. We never let go of the drone. We hardly made any key changes and never changed chords." Thomas Tidholm and Anders Lind, the engineer for the early albums, have listened to two cases full of live recordings from 1967 to 1969. After editing them, Anders has restored and mastered the live material from the old cassette tapes and for the two original albums – original analog master tapes have been used. Digitally transferred at 96 khz/24 bits and gently remastered by Anders Lind.
