Notes on Authorship

  • Livingston's commitment to the idea of "the folk," alongside his Marxist understanding of human creativity, led him to cast aside conventional notions of cultural propriety and authorship. So, it is uncertain which CFL players – or staff, in at least one case ("Madonna with No Divinity") – wrote the songs.

  • "CFL Seasons in the Sun" was the only popular "cover" song recorded by Livingston during the Sessions.
