Liner Notes[edit]

The liner notes welcome the listener to "Talk Is Cheap" Volume II. Rollins describes the performance as more "stories, bile and ranting diatribes", and himself as a "graying, limping philosophic misanthropic curmudgeon", and mentions that funds from each performance will be donated to "Hollygrove", a home for abused and neglected children in Los Angeles[citation needed]
