An Unauthorized Liner Note
Hilly Kristal is a traditional kind of character, and his record deserves a traditional sleeve note.  Most people know him only as the owner of CBGB, the rock and roll club on the Bowery in New York City, now possibly the most famous in the world.

For over 30 years it has been a focus for the city's pop music invention. 

Fewer people know that he sang on the stage of Radio City......
