Wallet recovery

Hi, I’m still new and trying to learn more about Grin and MW. My understanding is that since there are no addresses and all transactions essentially are using new private keys, that Grin wallets need to keep track of the private keys used to blind outputs as well as the amounts. So, if my wallet loses the private keys and amounts for an output does that mean I cannot recover those Grin?

I see there is a grin wallet recovery command though, so how does that work? How does grin recovery the private keys (how are they generated?) and the amounts if those are different for every transaction?
