BM: I don't really recall why I decided to record Pilgrim's Progress: I probably was just noodling around on the piano when I stumbled upon the chord progression that sounded familiar. That's the way I end up playing most songs rarely is it more than a spontaneous decision.

The fact that the song is relatively easy to play and the key fits into my limited vocal range probably had something to do with my decision to record it. And, it was always my second favorite song on A Salty Dog after the title track.
