My Pussy Belongs to Daddy

My Pussy Belongs to Daddy - 1957

A ribald collection of bawdy tunes from the 50s. Lots of double-entendre, but still fun. Definitely not politically correct.

I Want a Man to Give Me Some Luck - Faye Richmonde
I Tried It Everywhere - Saul T. Peter

Ferrante & Teicher - Adventure in Carols

Ferrante & Teicher - Adventure in Carols

This is a super-cool LP, totally mid-century and full of bachelor pad kitsch. What a great cover!

YEAR 15! Kay Martin and Her Body Guards - "I Know What He Wants for Christmas (But I Don't Know How to Wrap It!"

Year 15 of hosting this at the Groove Grotto! This is a classic. Enjoy! This really is a great album and a lot of fun! The Groove Grotto was the one of the first — if not THE first — to post this classic!

The Happy Crickets - Christmas with the Happy Christmas

This Chipmunks knockoff is almost guaranteed to clear a room...

Les Baxter - Space Escapade

Les Baxter - Space Escapade



Les Baxter - "Space Escapade." OK, I am MEGA-excited to post this one. I acquired a EXCELLENT first press mono copy of this one on eBay for $20 with free shipping. This is normally one of the priciest Baxter LPs out there (commonly selling for $75+ for a decent copy, and often higher). This was actually listed as "VG" but the wax is really spotless — VG++ and the cover is super-clean...just a bit of flaking at the top. NO handwriting (amazing!) This is something that rarely happens with a record of this vintage. Whoever owned it was likely an audiophile, keeping his/her records in great shape. "Space Escapade" is certainly one of the coolest, craziest and most recognizable mid-century album covers of all time. But what a great space age bachelor pad LP in general -- dancing strings, piano, theremin, harp — it's just all over the place in all the right ways.
