King Of The Swingers

Well friends, I told y’all I had somethin’ stupid for you didn’t I? The er, genesis, if you will, of this mix goes back a year or two when I got in the habit of playin the monkey song from The Jungle Book out at festivals. You know everybody loves that, an so it evolved some as I started to slippin’ 3 or 4 monkey songs in a row in there. It was kind of a fun thing. We’re all about the fun here y’knows. Anyway a couple weeks back a friend ask me if I can make a CD of kinda monkey and jungle type tunes for them to play at they kids party. What we got here is a version of the result. Things went a little bit wrong with the first draft I hear on account I got my Johnny Otis and Big Three Trio versions of ‘The Signifying Monkey’ mixed up. Boy, some of them Mamas was mad with me. Some of the language they used was worse than in the damn song! Don’t fear nor fret though, if you headin’ out cross country in a hot car with yer own lil’ monkeys a jumpin’ in the back for a ‘break’ there, then this mix is safe for they lil’ ears and has a bunch of pretty fun songs in there along with the usual old record club mash of genres for the whole family to enjoy. We’ll maybe get around to those baaad monkeys some other time.
