Who said ''They aint making Jews like Jesus anymore''? It was, of course, country musics resident iconoclast Kinky Friedman. These days, youll find more Kinky Friedman books in bookstores than Kinky Friedman records in record stores. Were trying to change that by issuing his historic second and third LPs together on one CD. The second LP included the now-classic They Aint Making Jews Like Jesus Anymore
, as well as Kinkys version of Billy Swans hit song Lover Please
(Rock-a-Billy Swan had served an apprenticeship with Kinky). By the time of the third LP, Kinky was on Bob Dylans Rolling Thunder Revue and had moved to Dylans record label. Dylan gave him a song he had yet to record, Catfish
(dedicated to the great baseball pitcher Catfish Hunter), Eric Clapton was on hand to play guitar, and Ringo Starr did a narration on one song. It was an all-star event, and, like the second LP, has never been reissued in Europe. CD Digipac with 40-page booklet.
