LOGJAM: Stumped!: CD

Sounds like a cross between Sheik Yerbouti-era Frank Zappa and the Mentors; or maybe NoMeansNo meets redneck jokes with Harry Nilsson medleys tossed into the mix to further befuddle taxonomy-ification. This is so well-executed as to be puzzling, and you’ll probably feel just awful when you cut the disc into the shape of a throwing star and hunt the horse from that Poco album cover with it (but you’ll do it nonetheless). More log than jam, one supposes. BEST SONG: “Last of the Summer Wine,” unless you want me to count “Nilsson Medley Schmedley” BEST SONG TITLE: “Nilsson Medley Schmedley (Clean Version)” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: This is the first record i’ve seen in like twenty years where the copyright date was printed in Roman numerals.
