Fun record for parties. Best thing about it js the cover and ridiculous movie trailers between songs... but with the exception of 2-3 classics, most of the songs are just okay: kinda funny once then the joke wears pretty thin (a senator’s take on wild thing gets particularly annoying fast...) Highlights are definitely the country tunes (LSD, Psycho, Rubber Room), wish it had more of those. But it’s a classic, rare record now so I was happy to find it for a good price.

Every track on this album is a real laff riot. Demented novelty records from the 60s including an American senator's stab at gettin down with the kids on a version of Wild Thing and a song about a guy who's girlfriend was run over by a steamroller - solution - slide her under the door!
Standout tracks for me are Wendell Austin's dire acid warning record 'LSD', the lyrics need to be heard to be believed ("I started using LSD/ it gave me quite a kick/ cheaper than booze and easy to use but it made me mentally sick") and Eddie Noack's country masterpiece Psycho (written by Leon Payne and covered by Elvis Costello, amongst others) ranks very high in the horror/ comedy stakes.
These are both beaten into second and third place by Porter Wagoner's truly epic song 'The Rubber Room'. Words can't do justice so just hear this song if you can. It's got the best demento echo sound ever (on the vocals!) - simulating the sound of a patient slowly succumbing to insanity in a mental facility.
Just to sweeten the deal - between every track on the vinyl you get twisted ads for cheap n nasty exploito '60s films as well!
The only drawback was the fi was none too hi on this version of the compilation. Weirdly muffled and distant. Probably best to get the cd reissue which sounded better and boasted more tracks as well.
