Kees Baars received a special thanks, as well as Hanneke Kappen. Both of them hosted radio shows and payed attention to Bodine on several occasions
Govert de Roos was responsible for the band photo on the front side of the sleeve. In those days, he also made a career as a photographer for the Dutch Playboy Magazine.

John Smit was mentioned as co-producer and engineer on Three Times Running
H.M.Demon, Ferry Bovet, Long Tall Jape, Jeronimo and Uncle Mick were thanked "for restoring our bodies and souls" on Three Times Running
Ed Bos was mentioned as manager on Three Times Running
The cover design on Three Times Running was attributed to Buzzin' Bruno and the photo on the rear (once more) Govert de Roos.

The reason they are listed here is to pay tribute to those persons who tried to make Bodine successful. For most of them, this was probably the first involvement with a metal band at such close range. It was s small circle of people--incomparable in size to the endless lists of persons mentioned on albums nowadays.

Podia was a company located in Bussum, t' Gooi, and rented out stage facilities to bands throughout the Netherlands. It was run by the Smeehuijzen brothers. Bodine used their gear on many occasions. Axel Langemeijer used to work for Podia, and it got him in touch with the band.

Digitally Re-Mastering: Peter van 't Riet at DIGIPRO
