I sure do!
Before this HIT records, based in Nashville, Tennessee, yet, all-genre embracing, had a number of celebs-n-their-own right (Sandy Posey,Bobbu Russell, Sam of Sam and Dave, Ray Stevens,etc.,etc.) record these, and in the 50s there was Tops, with their all
Come the 1970s, we had all of those above..I wonder if ADAM VIII, Ronco, or KTel (a la Jimmy Durante) got in on the act.
When these were out, QMO had "The Sound Effects" and "Dynamic Sound", with albums with such titles as "Golden hits of."(fill in 1970s year of choice),
or "Autumn","Spring,"Summer", or "Winter",(again, 70s year).'
Such GREAT songs, as
"HAVE YOU NEVER BEEN YELLOW JELLO"
"BLACK AND WHITE AND RED ALL OVER"
Three Labrador Retriever Knight
(Cory the GOlden Lab, Chuck the Black Lab, and Danny the Brown lab who started it all)
"DON'T SAY YOU DON'T DISMEMBER"
Beverly Boulevard Hills Sills
"THUNDER AND LIGHTNING BUGS IN A BOTTLE"
"THE NIGHT THE LIGHTS WENT OUT IN RACISM LAND"
and so many more.
Tell'em I sent ya! :-) Happy night after the Fourth! (even more so on East Coast)
