Art Carney “Music for Men Working”  A Columbia Records EP  (1955) Sidekick and neighbor Ed Norton to Jackie Gleason’s Ralph Kramden on the Honeymooners.  Seen here popping out of a manhole cover and singing “Song of the Sewer”  (on the Honeymooner’s he worked in the sewers and called himself  “an unground sanitation expert”).  Carney died in 2002.  He won a Best Actor Academy Award for his performance in 1974’s “Harry and Tonto”.   Here he is teaching Ralph to dance the “Hucklebuck”!

How about a spin?

spinme

The Wheel of Fortune turns up unexpected pleasures from the LPCoverLover archives of more than 4,000 records and has been known to be habit-forming.  You never know what it might bring up.  It’s like flipping through a mystery box of records at a house sale.  A box filled with treats and treasures and rarities in no particular order at all.  So click and spin and dig on while the spirit moves you.  Bet you can’t just do it once!  C’mon take a chance — Andrea dares you.

Garage greats Vol. 12

BRYAN SMITH - BACK IN YOUR OWN BACK YARD

LpCoverLover, Steve Hartnett writes:  I have been enjoying your posts for a long time now.  Here’s one for you. The piano’s happy but the night club looks a bit run down. Bryan and his happy piano have done quite a few albums, but this is my favorite cover.
