A small-run promotional item for Ralph's 10th birthday. The premise of this record is that Penn Jillette (of Penn & Teller fame) is locked in a hotel room for a week and given the entire Ralph Records discography to listen to and comment on. There is a short excerpt of a Ralph tune, and then Penn comments on it, and so on. Jillette dislikes the records, and by side 2 he has a nervous breakdown.

This resulting 3-sided show was edited from over 50 hours of music and taped commentary.
Side four of the recording (10 Years In 20 Minutes) was not part of the "Jillette sessions", but was included as a special bonus.

800 of these special two-abums sets were made, and were send out only to radio stations and to friends of Ralph Records.
Wrong catalog numbers 8502 (instead of 8205) on discs labels.

Produced by Ralph Records and The Cryptic Corporation in March 1982. Released in April 1982.
