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.

Two on a favorite children’s record label – Robin Hood!  One from the “Famous Children’s Stories” series and one from the “Children’s Playtime Songs” series.   Each is kind of trippy in that children’s fairy tale way.
