Who knows what evil lurks?

Italian EP by Franco Trincale on Fonola Records  (1972)  I just found this on YouTube.  Crazy.  What is he singing about?  I’m afraid to know.

Virgin records

Julie’s Sixteenth Birthday  John Bult   Rd Chollo Records  “You’re sixteen, you’re beautiful and you’re mine”  Here’s a classic of the incredibly strange genre.  It just gets stranger, creepier, more menacing the more you look at it.

Take it off! Take it off!

La Mascara Que Canta!  RCA Mexico    This reminds me of DeNiro as boxer Jake LaMotta in “Raging Bull” – over-the-hill and washed up, reciting poetry at a strip club.

T.B. Blues

The Mad-Hatters  From the Greene County Tuberculosis Society of Springfield, Missouri.  Here’s a rarity – a simple DIY paste-on front cover with these simple, odd paper “creations” representing some of the songs inside.  All having to do with the ill effects and respiratory problems of having Tuberculosis.  This is incredibly strange.  (Thanks to Will and Show and Tell Music, who might have more to add…)

Feel the burn

Personal Power through Creative Selling   Elmer G. Letterman, World’s Best-known Insurance Salesman     Released by the Success Motivation Institute!   But holy shit!   That’s an atomic bomb!   I don’t think any insurance policy will cover that.
