Not buying this album is a crime to which you too will be saying, ''Good Morning Judge''.
Smegma Cheese
I can only wonder if the fact that he can perform a style of music so well why lampooning it has caused many of his critics to dismiss him prematurely.
Bobby K. Daugherty
Buster Poindexter's version is a good one, and it offers a different sound from the original, with less music and more vocal emphasis.

Very nice album! I Like "Screwy Music" and "Good Morning Judge" (originaly from Wyonnie Harris)the most. "Smack Dab In The Middle" is another swing classic, "Bad Boy" is Rhythm 'n' Blues classic from the fifties of The Jive Bombers, "Hot Hot Hot" is remake of Arrow's carribean dance hit, "Are You Lonely For Me Baby" is a beautiful soul (hit for Al Green, Otis Redding, written by fabulous Bert Berns). And here it is a remake of his own song, beautiful "Heart Of Gold". Very enjoyable record!

This recording will get any party rocking. The choice of cover tunes are just delightful and Buster's voice is in fine form. They rock, croon, shimee, and shuffle. Hot Hot Hot will always live on as an ultiamte party tune. Cannibal fits the same mode as well. But Buster's crooning in The House Of The Rising Sun is almost unbeatable. Good Morning Judge and Screwy Music make me laugh and Oh Me Oh My almost makes me cry with emotion. Overall, this product is first class and will liven up anyone's day.

This is party music, pure and simple. Buster Poindexter's laughing, growling baritone gets the joint jumping with "Hot, Hot, Hot," "Cannibal," and other songs that'll wake up the crowd. First time I heard this album, I was impressed with Buster's choice of repertoire. He puts a new and refreshing spin on older tunes: the blues-belting "Bad Boy," the restrained "Oh Me Oh My," and the impassioned "House of the Rising Sun" and "Heart of Gold." There's also some comedy-novelty material, and Buster really sells it: "Good Morning Judge," a big-band blast with loudmouth Buster in hot water with the law; "Screwy Music," which is just what the title implies; and "Whadaya Want," a call-and-response tune with Buster and chorus. Everyone's having a good time here, and the fun is contagious.

This is the definitive Buster Poindexter album. Great songs, including his famous "Hot hot hot", an unsurpassed version of "House of the Rising Sun", and the soulful "Oh me oh my (I'm a fool for you baby)". Backed by the big band sound of the Banshees of Blue and its tight horn section, with strong background vocals by Soozie Tyrell and Pattie Scialfa (Springsteen's wife and band mate), the powerful voice of David Johansen (as Buster, formerly of the New York Dolls) has never been better showcased. Uplifting, spirited R&B music.

Who would have thought that David J. From the "New York Dolls" would morph into "Buster Poindexter ? No heavy messages here ! Just plain "Good Fun"!!! It's nice to dance or just listen to music that isn't preaching about the end of the world. I give it a major thumbs up , just for being what it is- FUN !

Buster Poindexter is the self- titled album from musical veteran David Johansen- a man who has made a name for himself as a member of the New York Dolls and also a solo artist. Johansen came up with the Buster Poindexter moniker back in 1987 when this, the debut album for him and his band, was first released.

This album is unique for its jazz/big band/swing sound thanks to the contributions from saxophones, trumpets, violins, and other instruments. There are a large number of musicians who make appearances and who play their instruments in these songs. The individual contributions and the unique musical sounds are one of many reasons for the album's unique sound and commercial success.

Most people have likely never heard of David Johansen or Buster Poindexter but most everyone is familiar with at least one song on this album: The party tune Hot Hot Hot. This song is often heard at celebrations of every type and while most people instantly recognize the tune, the majority does not realize that Buster Poindexter is the artist behind the music. Of course, Johansen didn't really write this song- it was actually composed by Arrow, a artist from the Caribbean. But it is the cover version on this album that has made the song an international hit and, of all the songs Johansen has been responsible for in the past thirty plus years, this song is the best known of all.

Besides the fun aspects of Hot Hot Hot, Cannibal, and other tunes, Buster Poindexter also offers some novelty tunes, ballads, and other covers. "Good Morning Judge" is a fun novelty tune, and Johansen is in fine vocal form; belting out the vocals in Louis Armstrong style as he sings about going to face the judge following a mishap with the law.
