A Halloween Song
The Pumpkin Man
Halloween Is All Around
Editor's note: other than a short snippet of Halloween effects at the beginning of the first side this hardly qualifies as a Halloween record. Most, if not all of the tracks, are classic songs given new lyrics to fit the Halloween theme. Which isn't the worst idea but it's surely geared for 6 year olds and not so 35 year old beatnik from Paris who downloads 300 LPs a day on the internet. Seeing as this is the only new Hallo-record I could find this year in the dollar bins at the thrift stores I'm pretty disappointed in this one.
Editor's note: well now... I found this lucky surprise inside an LP entitled "The Golden Facts of Life --- And Health" by Reginald R. Gold, D. C., PH. C.. I don't know if I just put the 45 in there after buying them from a local Salvation Army or if it was in there and I somehow missed it when I perused the wax to verify its playability chances. Either way it's here and it's about chiropractic! I hope you enjoy this because the full length LP by Gold will be coming sooner than later. Of course I've said such things before and then disappeared for months on end. We'll see.
As for Panza himself: I think he is still with us but it could be his son or just another guy with the same name and profession. Not that it matters since nobody can take Panza away from us now!
Editor's note: I've never been to a strip joint and don't plan on going anytime soon either. Not that I have anything against dancing naked chicks but seeing as it's morally reprehensible to me to pay to see boobs I'll pass on the show. However, if you're up for getting naked and doing it for free I'll set up shop around yer dancing table any day. Just make sure there aren't other dudes hanging about because two guys hairy eyeballing the same gratis stripper is almost worse than paying a ho to bare her wares.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
