The song "american girls" was written by Rivers during his solo show era in the 97-98 winter in boston
. However the version recorded for the "Meet the Deedles" soundtrack is quite different from the solo shows' version. The older version was very up-tempo, a real rocking song. The new version was slower, more of a smooth R-n-B/country song with a pop feel.
Recorded in early 1998 in Boston at a "pro" studio. It is unknown which one.
