Eugene Chadbourne Volume 2: Solo Acoustic Guitar
Eugene Chadbourne: acoustic guitar
AVAILABLE AS DOWNLOAD, ONLY...
Before Shockabilly, before the Downtown New York scene,
there was a guy in Alberta playing very strange things on an
acoustic guitar. This disc is a reissue of the classic and
long out-of-print second solo LP by legendary guitar madman
Eugene Chadbourne. Beautifully recorded, and mastered
directly from the master tapes, Volume 2 is an essential
document of Chadbourne's innovative prepared guitar playing.
This reissue also includes three previously unreleased tracks
from the same period (ca. 1976). Volume 2: Solo Acoustic
Guitar is a unique document of the new directions in
guitar playing that Chadbourne helped pioneer in the US.

problems with immigration. There are several sounds on this
recording which the performer had nothing to do with..."
