The genesis of this volume was an experiment to channel both brothers back towards Gutbucket basics after a year of drifting in different directions, with only one joint venture somewhat related to the gutbucket genre. In this case, each brother set out to make a list of their absolute gutbuckiest artists, with the intent of whittling it down to the greasiest 25 each. After a week or so, Brother Funky had about 40 in his master list; Brother Do-It-All Doowad had about 94 and counting before they called time. When lists were compared, each of the brothers laid claim to their highest ranked 25. Any artist who showed up on both lists (nearly all of them, as to be expected) was assigned to whichever brother ranked them highest.

Brother Funky says: I could have tinkered with my list for months and still easily forgotten some arguably essential artists, or not been completely happy with my rankings. But I'm content enough with my final track selections to live with them.

Brother Doowad says: I did keep Brother Funky abreast of the liberties I was taking as I sequenced the mix (basically by sound, the rankings were quickly set aside) and we agreed to allow some flexibility with regards to replacements, doubling-up picks, and consolidation of artists to contribute to the overall flow. And the trade of Waits for Stones was to gutbucketry what the Rogers Hornsby-Frankie Frisch trade was to depression-era Cardinals baseball. Oh, and Doowadette (not pictured) came up with the title.
