Since I'll be away from the laptop that contains these music files for a couple days, I'm posting this earlier than usual.
Things I've collected over the years or acquired on mixtapes and comps or gathered from the internet or the library or my parents' attic. I make no claims to "discovering" or "owning" anything. Probably neither do you. It's whatever I feel like playing that week. Things that may or may not be familiar. Who knows? Past weeks here too. Just type "Audio" in the search engine. Or if you're too lazy to press a button more than once, here are the first thirty. You don't get the playlists, though, and you can't get the shows after that. You can right-click this if you want to save a zip file of this one (containing an mp3 of the file) for later. Here what information I was able to find:
DOROTHY SHAY- Feudin' and Fightin' (1947)
THE ELECTRIC COMPANY- Be Kind To The Letter S (c. 1974)
GEORGE FORMBY- Oh, Don't The Wind Blow Cold (1940)
THE CHUMPS- Tipsy #3
THE LADY-BUGS- How Do You Do It
GUY DRAKE- The Marching Hippies (1971)
Pre-dated the tea party movement by forty years.
DICKIE GOODMAN-Harry's Jockstrap (1964)
This album is never mentioned in any biographical information about Dickie Goodman. This party record is actually a parody of a parody. My Son, the Joke is a spoof of Allan Sherman's series of My Son... comedy albums of the time that parodied traditional folks songs with lyrics about Long Island suburbia. Here's Goodman's version of Sherman's version of Frere Jacques.
HELEN KANE- Hug Me, Kiss Me, Love Me (c. 1933)
Forget what I said before. This is the original tea party song.
JANIE GRANT- That Greasy Kid Stuff (1962)
Don't stop here (or think less of this curation) because you may be offended by domestic violence. It ends at 28:30 and you can go back to less harmful forms of incorrectness.
JOHNNIE WRIGHT- Hello Vietnam (1965)
JOE DODO & THE GROOVERS- Groovy (1958)
LINDA LAURIE- Jose He Say (1964)
It's her doing both voices
LOUIS JORDAN- Beans And Cornbread (1949)
ARLENE HARDEN- Lovin' Man (1970)
MERRY MARVEL MARCHING SOCIETY- Anthem (1966)
NANCY WALKER- I Hate Men (1959)
NATIONAL LAMPOON- Catch It And Keep It
from LP Radio Dinner, 1972
PASQUALE & THE LUNAR-TIKS- Moon Madness
