Sex o Rama

I can't imagine that this album could really cause any magic to happen, it just gave me the giggles. Raunchy sax music and breathy babe vocals, really? And if she has three faces and two left hands, where are all the extra boobs?

If I Were a Rich Man I would Have No Reason to Play the Sitar

Well maybe I was a mite cranky when I wrote the post below, but now just one song has turned my frown upside-down into a more comfortable mocking sneer. Nothing like a Tijuana Brass-esque version of If I Were a Rich Man, with tuba and sitar solo by Lord Sitar himself to start the day off right. Daydream Believer and I Can See For Miles, too!

Here's one for All the Teens

I don't know if Les Baxter was hoping that adding "teen" in the album title would put this on the jukebox playlists of soda shops and other teen hangouts, but really it's typical Baxter meandering wankitude of self-indulgent percussion solos--including the first 2 minutes of the promisingly titled "Uncle Tom Tom"--spritely flutes, guitars, and marimbas that sort of vamp until the sound engineer fades out. What can I say, my head was turned by song titles like "ooch-i-Baba" and "ting ting ting".

The Jet Benny Show.

A "Star Wars" spoof starring a bad Jack Benny impersonator. My ex-wife turned me on to this one years ago, but I won't hold that against the film.

Mudflap Girl Was Real

Perhaps from a slightly mainstream source for this crowd, but read about it in WIRED - cool!

It's been a few years since Mr. D introduced us to the magic of Preston Epps and his Bongo Boogie. Way too long for a sloppy seconds, as far as I'm concerned.

Ross and Mulligan

Annie Ross chose some great company to perform on her first solo album after leaving legendary trio Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross--Gerry Mulligan, Art Farmer, and Chet Baker. Nice stuff.

Re-upped Tomato

The link has expired from the first time I posted this album on this blog in 2007, but fortunately you can get this great album with saucy calypso by The Charmer, Lord Kitchener, and the Duke of Iron at listentoyourears.

Pointy Shoes

COWBOYS INTERNATIONAL Useta love 'em - great pop group. Every song should been a hit, but none were.

Beware the Tivvy

Tivvy may seem like a friendly little bird, and be offering you mountains of ice cream, waterfalls of lemonade, and a bit of fun, eh-- but you'd best keep your distance.

Tivvy's tune from Lord of the Boot Sale or Forgotten Vinyl,  image found here.

Es el "Bicycle"

Americans have their love songs to their cars, the Spanish love their bicycles. At least in this sixties era tune by The Rocking Boys. 

Put a Tiger in Your Tank

An aspect-ratio challenged look at London's Carnaby street in the sixties. 

Seeco Sampler

I enjoyed this Around the World for American Philistines via Seeco compilation posted recently by Thrift Store DJ in all its scratchy glory.  
My favorite cut is the faux Parisian "Grands Boulevards" which starts off with an appropriately Frenchy accordion but soon drifts into "In the Mood" before it remembers why it's there and reverts back to other more Gallic music. Actually there are better cuts from Puerto Rico, Bogota, and Rio, but I would lose the reputation I've been trying to build for years if I started posting good music.

Jayne Mansfield bist kein Snicksnack-Snuckelchen!

But poor little me is becoming a little seasick here watching this. Those big waves are all over the place. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Come take up your Hats, and away let us haste/ To the Butterfly's Ball, and the Grasshopper's Feast

One might think that a 19th century poem by a British historian and abolitionist (and a 1973 best-selling children's book) would be strange source material for a progish concept album by then recently-departed from Deep Purple's Roger Glover.

Even stranger would be the decision to film a one-off live performance (with Glover, Vincent Price, Twiggy, Ian Gillan, et al.) with in some live action filmed bits with actors in poorly-made animal costumes and animation thrown in.

The 1976 film was directed, produced and co-written by Tony Klinger (producer of The Kids Are Alright and director of Deep Purple Rises Over Japan).

Sad Truth

My nomination for the best Bob Dylan imitation by a 1960s Chilean band goes to......Los Jockers (really? not Los Jokers?) for their visceral and heartfelt rendition of  Triste Realidad. You dragged it out of me, I don't like Dylan at all, except for "If Dogs Run Free".

Bob & Annetta Glickman - FAME

Billed as "the duo with the 5-piece sound", these performers from Orlando, Florida are definitely one of many who inspired those wacky guys and gals from SCTV. Not sure of the release date, but it must be very early 80s given that they recorded "Fame". The rest of the LP consists of older material, but also includes "The Gambler". They bear a strikingly odd resemblance to Ed Begley, Jr. and Andrea Martin which just add to the fun of it all. What they lack in talent, they make up for with sheer sass! You will have the chorus of - "REMEMBAH!, REMEMBAH!, REMEMBAH! ..." lodged into your brain for the next few weeks. I apologize in advance for this post.

"Pancho Lopez"

Pancho Lopez? Davy Crockett? Different strokes for different folks.

A Spritely Dschinghis Khan

Hip hooray, it's almost time for Eurovision, so let's pay tribute to Eurovisionaries gone by with this 1981 cover of Dschinghis Khan by the Thai group the Royal Sprites.

Do You Brush Your Teeth?

Belgian Marie Marie encourages proper dental hygiene in this 1980 French EP. I prefer gnawing on a Nylabone, myself.

The Ookpik Song!

Perhaps you recall this post from a few days ago in which I pondered the meaning of life, oh, and asked if anyone had a copy of the Ookpik song, a tune penned in honor of the owlish mascot created for the Canadian government circa 1965. Since I have had no responses to date, either no one had one or the ones who did are major dillweeds,  so......at great personal financial and emotional sacrifice ($5, and having to deal with Canadian record dealers, respectively) I now present.....The Ookpik Song by The Romeos!

For more about why Canada may have abandoned the ookpiks, click here.

Love and everything else too!!!

Karswell has a great eye for retro cool and whimsy. Flipping out on this recent share of the Sunset House mail order catalogue from 1964. This stuff would've been right in my wheel house as an 8 year old in '64.

Clases de Cha Cha cha

The Request Records label started my passion for calypso and cha cha many years ago. I had this cha cha album on cassette and practically wore it out. I almost didn't recognize it not coming out of tinny car speakers.

You can almost taste the sweat ....
