I grew up listening to this record in the 70's and early 80's. My brother would play it all of the time and the songs were so weird and funky. 30 years later, finding a copy of this classic is almost impossible. Many of the songs are not "politically correct" so they would never get air time if they were written today. If you like strange and unusual songs, and have never heard this album, buy it when you can. I can't say that you will love the album like I do, but you will have to agree that it is one funky mixed up set of 40 songs. Some will make you want to dance, some will make you want to cry, and others are down right funny. A similar album was released in Canada under the name of 25 Funny Funky Hits. All of the songs on that two disk set are part of the 40 on this album.

I bought this via mail order (I think they must have had a tv commercial during the early 70's).

Chock full of great funny novelty songs.

You can't go wrong if you can somehow find this.

I got this for my dad who turned 68. He told me that I need to get it on CD so he doesn't run the risk of scratching the record. I was surprised that he remember all the words to just about every song.

Thank you again!
David
