northern exposure

Louis Prima

“The Call of the Wildest”
Capitol # T836

From the Back Cover:

The Pump Song (‘You can’t tell the depth of the well by the length of the handle on the pump’) offers some homespun Prima philosophy; while Closest To The Bone (‘the sweeter is the meat’) explains why Louis likes thin girls.”

you should have listened to Them.

The Mighty Accordion Band

“They Said it Couldn’t Be Done!”
Capitol # ST1212

From the Back Cover:

“If you’re looking for a nice old-time accordion album with Lady of Spain and the like, it should be pretty clear already that this isn’t it. For the listener, music by the Mighty Accordion Band can be summed up simply: more fun that a barrel of monkeys.”
