"Up until this release, there wasn't a single title from 1979 in the House of Chadula series. I guarantee you also won't find a recording of mine from 1979 that sounds as good as this one. [...] When I first was handed this recording, I thought it was an example of Randy Hutton and I playing BEFORE I moved to New York, i.e. circa 1975-77. Then I realized this was cut when I had already been in NYC for several years, and was now playing dobro and 12 string. Back when I lived in Calgary, there was a period when Hutton and I got together almost every weekend to play acoustic guitar duets, just because there was not much else to do! We were trying, with our acoustic guitars, to make music that sounded like Ornette Coleman, and so forth. Then we discovered Derek Bailey. Then I went to NYC and my music became even more aggressive and strange. Hutton on the other hand pursued his own course, and probably still is [...] and he used to get a particular charge, I think, out of hearing his style described as really eccentric. One day I would like to write further about his playing, but for now, here's hoping this beautiful sounding recording will bring pleasure. Even the "Sun Records" section!"-Eugene Chadbourne
