From the liner notes:

“I was a stinkin’, filthy, no-good junkie, twisted out of my mind.  Up tight.  Bound by dope.  A chronic addict.  A chronic criminal.  A chronic liar.  There was no way out.  The doctors said it.  The narcos said it.  My family said it. 
It was my sister’s boyfriend who gave me my first taste of marijuana.  I was not quite ten at the time…  I was out of my mind!  I never forgot the beating I got when my father found out.  Man!  I was sick!… Kept throwing up, falling down, getting up…  laughing all the time my father was hitting me.”

executives The Executives
“Goin’ Places”
Executive # 301

From the liner notes:  “The first thing you notice is the incredible number of instruments on the stage.  Could they possibly use them all?  No way.  Nobody could be that versatile. that talented you say.  But as soon as they step on stage, you know that you’ve underestimated them.  The way they look, the way they act tells you that the Executives are professionals.  They are in charge.  The show starts and for the next hour or so you become involved.  Your emotions are touched.  You laugh, you listen, and you’re moved… because the Executives deliver.

It’s always over too soon and before you know it you’re walking out into the night to your car.  On the way home you try to pick out your favorite number, your favorite joke, your favorite moment.  And it’s not easy to decide.  It isn’t until later, until after you’re home that you discover you’ve been changed a little.  From now on it’s just going to take more to entertain you.  A little extra to reach you.  Because you’ve been spoiled.  You’ve been to see the Executives.”

Don Reo (note: Mr. Reo was the first comedy partner of comedian Slappy White.  He then worked as writer on the JIMMY DURANTE PRESENTS THE LENNON SISTERS SHOW.  Mr. Reo currently writes for T.V.’s LAUGH – IN.)

“The Tasty Touch”
Rendezvous # M-1308

“The album title is an expression borrowed from KPOL’s ‘Man About Midnight’, Mark Dunhill.  He has often used the phrase to describe Eddie’s records and you are sure to agree that the Baxter touch is ‘THE TASTY TOUCH’”
