        Actually, I thought this volume was better than the first. First one is good, as well.

          Nowhere near as good as the first volume (or indeed the Psycho Serenade album, subtitled Wavy Gravy 2 when it was reissued).
          It still has good moments albeit hit and miss and rather chaotically compiled imo. The Leather Boy is comped elsewhere in better quality but is a great track (all his stuff is good).
          You just have to look at some of the track titles to see the wild territory we're in here.... Hearse On a Safari, Grave In the Desert... whaaaat!? Clinkerated Chimes... another odd one.
          The '50s and '60s were such great decades for weird novelty records. Nobody really makes novelty songs anymore. Well - ok they might exist but I don't hear them. Crazy Frog was the last one I can recall... and that was just bad, not good bad like these.
          The sound quality is poor on this - it has a dubbed-from-cassette sound, bit muffled.
          I used to buy these type of comps on sight in the '80s. Wild stuff. Even though this one isn't the best it's still pretty good.
