The Wacky World of Spike Jones Record Album

There are many collections of songs out there, this is one of them. Thank you Captain Obvious.

Funny songs, spoofs on songs, and even using guns, blocks of wood and anything else he could get his hands on as instruments, Spike Jones and his City Slickers could play just about anything. The band itself was made up of top notch musicians who just loved to have fun.

One of my favorite songs is “Yes, We Have No Bananas” and of course, here is an MP3:
