Nelson re-recorded the album at Muscle Shoals Sound Studios in two days and Wexler produced it.The album became one of the first concept albums in country music. The theme of the songs centers in divorce, narrated from both viewpoints. The one of the woman is narrated on side one; while the man's on side two.
