At that time Bobbejaanland employed people and was taken over by Parques Reunidos , a Spanish-American amusement park group. It remained uncertain until the very last minute whether the founder would put his signature on the deal. Uncertainty over the future of amusement parks was ultimately decisive. The Schoepen family chose the more certain path, which also seemed evident to the founder.
After the sale, when the news program Terzake on the Flemish Broadcast VRT asked him if he had chosen to take the big money, Schoepen answered, staring ahead blankly, "What am I going to do with all that money; I can only eat twice a day.
With the sale of the park, the last family business in the amusement park sector in Belgium disappeared. Schoepen and his wife lived on the domain together, until his death in May Schoepen recovered from his illness and was again engaged in music.
In he gave four surprise performances at the literary festival Saint-Amour, where he again brought people his well-known "De lichtjes van de Schelde". That month, with the efforts of his son Tom Schoepen, Bobbejaan Records was brought back to life. The record company was established in but lapsed following the success of Bobbejaanland. The label is now focused on releases centered on Bobbejaan Schoepen. On 13 February , with much media attention, Schoepen received a Lifetime Achievement Award in the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels for his successful career as a singer, musician, and for his pioneering work in Belgian music history.
The album was mixed at South Beach Studios in Miami. The idea for this project originated with music producer Firmin Michiels and the Dead Man Ray -tour in , but the idea was shelved when Schoepen was diagnosed with cancer. Michiels was aware that Bobbejaan Schoepen could not just pick up where he left off and carry his show for a large audience: his top years were long past and the amusement park had inflicted too much damage on the singer.
The album was recorded with five Belgian musicians in Schoepen's living room; he would have to deal with various health issues throughout the recording sessions. The release in May immediately received broad attention from the TV-journals and other media.
