After one too many drinks!

Tony pulled this one out from right under my nose at the last WFMU record fair.   What a find!  Wins for most category tags.  Creepy and wonderful.  Best Canadian cover I’ve ever seen.  “Pour Tout Le Monde”  Les Ventrillaires  Montagnard Records   This is a Canadian comedy label that put out lots of “adult” comedy records – like our Dooto or Adam and FAX labels in the states.

Cocktail shaker

“It’s Party Time”   Featuring Jim Watson with Guest Star Joel Cowan.   Spicy Records.   Here’s a gem of a cover.   Looks like something Crumb might have seen (He did a series of similar illustrations and covers depicting great jazz and blues musicians for Yazoo! Records, etc.)
