From the back cover: "The Sawbuck Singers" are a completely unique vocal group; ten girls now attending the College of New Rochelle. They were originally organized by Mica McCann when she was a freshman and was asked to provide entertainment for the College's annual "Winter Weekend".

During Mica McCann's second year in college, she was placed in charge of a class project to raise money for the school. An inter-collegiate hootenanny was arranged with groups invited from Cornell, Fordham and the University of Virginia. The fund raising program was a huge success, "The Sawbuck Singers" were stars of the show and decided to stay together as a professional group. Many of the songs in this album are performed by the girls in their personal appearances.
