eYeGeNeYe presents: Vinyl Fun


This is definitely too good and too funny not to post it! All tracks come from youtube channel VinylFun and the name couldn’t have been chosen better. I promise, each track I’ve picked is better that the next, and you won’t keep from laughing about discs melted to the table, Chinese chop suicide, c-sides and sea-sides, unreliable geezers, and impossible names like Engelbert Humperdink (instead of Fred) . All tracks (except one) come from the UK and stand for a British tradition of ‘fun’ records (spoken or vocal) that is much different to that one of the American “Novelty” records. From Peter Sellers to Marty Feldman and even Benny Clark, I have selected 32 vocal recordings, all with a swing, and many with electrical gueetars. You will hear singers stepping out of the chorus, dropping their sneakers to follow like a shadow, and locked in the echo-box. My set ends with a lovely version of that unforgettable “End of the Season”, as originally done by … the Kinks! I still wonder what’s funny about Benny Hill’s poised "Garden of Love” and “Andalusian Gypsies” and were the 'Boom Oo Yatta-Ta-Ta' and the 'Rama Lama Ding Dong' and the “Pop Shewhupshewhup” went. You will find out.
PS Go visit the VinylFun channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChWtm9ECkSBPx6lkL5-_dIg)  and you will sure discover more funny records (that man has great taste, hats off) .
