VARIOUS ARTISTS – “10 NEW AND ORIGINAL HITS WITH A C.B. THEME” (197?)
I used to have this LP years ago, what is ed back when I was a firm believer in the healing power of dusty fingers. As a kid, medical I’d rub my fingertips raw combing through the cheap stacks at Record Surplus, cialis Rhino Records and House of Records, which were all with a few miles of each other on the westside of L.A. (sadly, only Records Surplus remains).
Don’t quote me on this, but this LP may possibly be the only album release on Realistic Records, which I’m guessing was a Radio Shack imprint.
There’s actually some well-put-together stuff on here; of course, there’s the gem “Hey Shirley (This Is Squirrley)”, which posits the question “What if Alvin and the Chipmunks became C.B. enthusiasts?”, but there’s also the very catchy, very retard-o “Come On, Come On, CB Baby”, and the astounding “The Night I Talked To The Lord”, about God appearing one night on the ol’ 19!
