    Unknown (Two Women Singing) - Audiodisc Recording (78rpm)

    Found at the Seattle Goodwill in 2000. Two women singing quite off key and really going for broke on this home recording. To find out more on acetates and audiodiscs click here. Quality of the disc is very scratchy, it sounds at times as if was used as a Frisbee and there’s an annoying hum throughout the song but to clean it up would be pointless. Enjoy it as if you put the needle down yourself.

    The Dondero High School A Capella Choir - Fox On The Run/Sunshine Of Your Love

    I became fascinated with School Band Music years ago in the 80’s when I picked up a marching band record at a thrift store and heard interpretations of popular songs by kids. Now… there’s a lot of crap to sift through when looking for school band records and most LPs will only have one good song (if that). There are exceptions to that rule, like the Lochiel and South Carvolth (Langley Schools Music Project) records that were found in Canada by Brian Linds and released on CD by Irwin Chusid. The two cuts here from the Dondero kids are fun gems and it’s the first time I’ve heard Sweet’s ‘Fox On The Run’ being covered by a School Band. Cream’s ‘Sunshine’ is a bonus I included for your listening pleasure. These songs are made possible by Suzanne Baumann who found this cassette in a thrift store in 2002 and she writes, "Dondero is located in Royal Oak, Michigan. Their mascot, The Oaks. A Capella is the name of their advanced level chorus, and, as far as I can tell, has nothing to do with the style of singing they do!"

    Red Shadow (The Economics Rock & Roll Band) - Understanding Marx

    "Read Marx and Lenin it will really turn you loose!" Nothing like a groovy now sound take on Marxism. Happy-go-lucky singers with spoken stories. Classic.

    Murry Wilson - Colonel’s March

    Murry was fired from The Beach Boys, by the boys. He started producing some classmates of his sons, The Sunrays. They only had one big hit, "I Live For The Sun." During those sessions, Murry fashioned himself a jingle writer and proceeded to record this Kentucky Fried Chicken travesty. It was never used for anything, but was included on the (now out of print) Sunrays box set. Thanks go out to Dana Countryman for turning me onto this recording a couple of years ago. It’s a short song, but worth every hilarious second.

  5. Chris- Crazy Crazy

    Chris - Crazy Crazy

    In the world of Organ Grinder records there are many misses, but this album by Chris Anderson (who appears to prefer to just be called "Chris" as his stage name) gets me dancing around and tapping my toes. He’d make Lenny Dee mighty proud with his take on this classic song. The LP is a vanity pressing (no date, but I’m guessing from the late 70’s) and features Chris on the Hammond Console Series 2300 and Model B-3 Organs. Here’s the text from the back cover of the album, "In every young person’s life there comes a time when a commitment must be made as to what they want to do with the rest of their life. From the foot tapping rhythm of the up tempo tunes to the tender emotion of the ballads, the listener can experience and realize the total commitment that has influenced Chris and his music from the beginning. Chris’ natural talent reaches out to music lovers of all ages. His artistry and arrangements at the organ keyboard fascinate his listeners. The selections chosen for this album reflect the requests presented to Chris wherever he appears, whether in concert or in a personal appearance."

    Janeen Brady & The Brite Singers - I’m A Mormon

    Every Sunday I’ll be posting some good ol’ time religion! Here we have "I’m A Mormon." I found this record while living in Reno, Nevada in 1993 and over the years from excessive play (mostly for alcohol-induced friends) my copy is worn out (literally), but thanks to Brother Russell (of Melbaworld) I have a nice clean copy for you to download. I have a couple of friends (of the Mormon faith) who had this record while growing up (they also had the "Bounce Back" cassette, but that’s for another Sunday!). The wacky thing about this song is not only the lyrics "I’m a Mormon, yes I am, so if you want to study a Mormon, I’m a living specimen" but it’s set to a rousing marching beat. Don’t be surprised if you end up walking down the street and slowly start to go insane humming it.
