Colonel Jubilation B. Johnston and His Mystic Knights Band and Street Singers - Moldy Goldies Moldy Goldies
Pop Used - LP CS 9332 Columbia
1966 Stereo Original. Black Demonstration Stamp And Writing On Back Cover. Some Minor Creasing And Rubbing Along With A Small (1/2") Split On The Top Spine. Vinyl Plays Quietly. “In 1966, When Bob Dylan Asked Producer Bob Johnston To Help Conjure The Booze-Soaked Salvation Army Band Sound That Kicked Off The Album Blonde On Blonde With Its Stumble-Bum Arrangement Of "Rainy Day Women #12 & #35," He Probably Had No Idea What He Was Starting. Johnston (Here Performing As Col. Jubilation B. Johnson), For Reasons Lost To History, Became So Enamored Of The Shambolic Sound Of "Rainy Day Women" That He And The Nashville Session Crew Who Played On Blonde On Blonde Used It As The Basis For An Entire Album, The Obscure, One-Shot Moldy Goldies, Credited To Col. Jubilation B. Johnston & His Mystic Knight Band And Street Singers. Featuring Covers Of Eleven Pop Hits Of The Day (Including "Rainy Day Women"), Moldy Goldies Turns Each Song Into A Massive Practical Joke, With Nearly Every Number Featuring Addled March Time Drumming, Bleating Horns, Incongruent Sound Effects, And Vocalists Desperately Trying To Keep A Straight Face Amidst The Chaos (And Occasionally Failing, Collapsing Into Gales Of Laughter On At Least Two Numbers). Greil Marcus Described One Track By Writing "A Demented Hillbilly Utters "The Name Game" As If He's Sure It Holds The Secrets Of The Universe," A Dazzling Anti-Masterpiece If There Ever Was Such A Thing, Moldy Goldies May Be The Most Engagingly Off-Putting Album Ever Released By A Major Record Label, Capturing A Number Of Gifted Musicians Sabotaging Their Own Performances For A Hearty Laugh. So How Come This Still Hasn't Been Reissued On CD?” ~ Mark Deming, AMG... more details
