Next to his enormous output on CDR, Eugene Chadbourne does have albums released by record labels as well.
One of these is "The Hills Have Jazz".
In the liner notes, Eugene tells the story of how he visited L.A., got to borrow Wes Craven's vintage Gibson acoustic guitar, and of how he and Richie invited a couple of L.A. jazz musicians to participate in the recordings.
Great reading and the music's even better.
