GLORIA BALSAM: Fluffy: 7”

Sep 20, 2017

Originally released 1979, this is a “dead stock” reissue (original vinyl pressings with a reproduced cover) of an old Dr. Demento Show staple. In Demento fashion, the tune is an oddball paen to a lost dog, sung off-key with sentimental strings and backed by assorted personnel from Psycotic Pineapple and the Rubinoos. The flip is an equally atonal, ear-splitting cover of “High Hopes” that no doubt made Sinatra cringe. –Jimmy Alvarado (Richmond, richmondrevisited.bigcartel.com)
