A fine selection here to wrap up a weeks worth of baseball themed sounds. This will be the last one, i promise. After this we'll get back to our regularly scheduled programming of random ass whatever crap that strikes my fancy on any given day.
This one's a pretty cool mystery record. Blank white labels with hand written titles. On the flip side is a Telly Savalas tune- I'm not even making this up. Hear it HERE. A long time record shop owner that i used to know (an old dude who has run a place since punk was actually relevant) told me that they used to do one-off 45s like this for jukeboxes. Songs that employees and/or barflys wanted to hear, but that weren't actually available on 45. How true is it? Who knows- the guy sold more reefer than he did vinyl... I'm not stating any facts here, you just take what you hear and pass it on. Nice guy though, i don't think he would have lied to me. So this is what it is. What the hell was whoever had the record made thinking is what i want to know? Abbot and Costello and Telly Savalas? Such an unlikely pairing. We'll never know. I'm just glad that i found it and gave it a good home.
It's nothing more than the classic 'Who's on first' routine which, if you ask me, is a timeless bit of comedy from a bygone era. Still makes me laugh out loud every time i listen to it...
