Wanted man

Sam

“Sing It Again, Sam!”   The inimitable song stylings of Sam Sacks   Arliss Records   For those unfamiliar with the wonder of WFMU’s Beware of the Blog let this be a welcome introduction.   Go to BOTB and listen to Sam’s fantastically awful mauling of standards.   A private recording on par with the best of the worst from Mrs. Miller, Lucia Pamela and Florence Foster Jenkins.   I gotta find a copy!

Emil Nargi IS Elvis   “It’s Now or Never”   There are so many records by Elvis impersonators you can’t imagine.   Each one stranger than the last.   Emil looks like he could be one of the little dolls or porceline statuettes that my Grandma Loretta kept in a glass case.

“The Demon Possessed Boy”   A T.L. Osborn Evangelistic Production     Like A.A. Allen, Osborn was a Soul Crusader who traveled the country – the world – healing the sick and possessed, driving out demons and performing assorted miracles.   He recorded his big tent revival meetings and audience responses.   This record features a boy who misfiled his father’s records one day, leading his father to suspect the devil’s hand and bring him to see the great and mighty Osborn.   In this recording, T.L. dramatically illustrates his power of exorcism, leaving the boy cleansed, never to mistake James Brown with Clifford Brown again.   True story.
