• Various Artists - Don’t Go Near The Eskimos – 28 Classic U.S. Novelties

28-track compilation of U.S. Novelties, encompassing hits, misses, rarities and the downright absurd, issued between 1948-62.

The biggest hits featured herein are sides like 'Witch Doctor' (the first hit record to use sped-up voices), 'Who Put The Bomp (In The Bomp, Bomp, Bomp)', 'Kookie, Kookie', 'Alley-Oop', 'James (Hold The Ladder Steady)', 'Mr Custer', 'Uh! Oh! (part 2)', 'Cinderella' and 'Say Man'.

Includes early R&R novelties like 'Stranded In The Jungle', 'Cops And Robbers', 'The Flying Saucer (parts 1&2)' and 'Along Came Jones' alongside cult classics like 'Lone Ranger Gonna Get Married', 'Lone Teen Ranger' (sung by a pre-S&G Paul Simon), 'The Gorilla', 'Nag', 'My Wife Can't Cook' and '(She Got A) Nose Job'.

Standouts among the sheer absurdities are the title track, 'Don't Go Near The Eskimos' (a parody of an earlier hit, 'Don't Go Near The Indians') and sides like 'Armpit No.6', 'It's A Gas', 'What Is A Fisterris?' and 'Gun Totin' Critter Called Jack'.

In closing, perhaps the Daddy of them all: Ziggy Talent's monumental 'Maharajah Of Magador', the spiritual godfather to Ray Stevens' preposterous 'Ahab The Arab'.

It probably goes without saying that many of these sides are as rare as rocking horse manure, and as such are unavailable elsewhere on CD.
