The Misfits began this recording session on 08/07/1980 with Bobby Steele on guitar and completed and mixed on 09/05/1980 with Doyle. For each song, Bobby laid down three guitar tracks (one lead track and two rhythm tracks). Doyle later added guitar tracks to most songs, which were then mixed with his guitar sound in the center. Two songs also include additional guitar by producer Robbie Alter. Excluding overdubs, each song was recorded in one take, except "London Dungeon," of which the band recorded two takes.
