The Dim Stars were a short-lived, indie all-star group consisting of Gumball's Don Fleming, Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, and Steve Shelley, and most importantly, Richard Hell. This was Hell's first album since 1982's Destiny Street. "All My Witches Come True," "Downtown at Dawn," and a cover of T. Rex's "Rip Off" sound like vintage Richard Hell, while "Dim Star Theme" and "Incense is the Essence" resemble prime Sonic Youth noise-guitar workouts.

Also featured are "Ain't She Sweet" and "What to Do", recorded in 1954, both of which find Cole trading vocals with his daughters Carole and Natalie, whose cross-generational 1991 duet version of "Unforgettable" helped to introduce her father to a new generation of listeners.
