• HOMER & JETHRO - Slaughter the Standards

There was a lot more to the corn-ball antics of Homer & Jethro than initially meets the eye (or should we say ears) than a duo that could ruin a perfectly good pop tune. Underneath it all they were two great and talented musicians and their perverse and satirical brand of humour earned then the title of 'the thinking man's hillbillies'.

Listen to their renditions of many classic tunes including, 'Love and Marriage', 'Jam-Bowl-Liar (Jambalaya)' and the one and only June Carter jumps on board for renditions of 'Baby It's Cold Outside' and 'The Huckle Buck'. Also on offer are some great live tracks including a great performance of 'Battle of Kookamonga' which was one of their biggest successes and won them a Grammy in 1959.

So, you can sit back and enjoy the tender, passionate and inspired lyrics to the wonderful classics or you can listen to these versions by Homer and Jethro… I think we know which ones we want to hear!
