The name "Hand it Over" suggests the songs may have been sitting around for awhile… It was on a major label, which wouldn’t be in a hurry to put the disc out, so it wouldn’t be surprising if there was a delay of a year or so before Reprise put it out after J had handed it all over.

It says 1996 Spam the bread Music, so the album was finished at least as early as 96. So it seems easily possible that he may have gotten started around ’94 when Kurt Cobain was still alive.

I’m just saying it seems feasible…

Thanx Maxini for the Murph info!
