DOCUMENTARY RECORD CO.
Editor's note: pretty self-explanatory as a behind the scenes look at the military training of the U. S. Air Force in the 1950s. Simple but interesting as most audio recordings from that era tend to be.

Editor's note: I'll admit to playing this as background music simply because it's not original works and thus I didn't really pay attention. An odd thing to say as a blogger but that's how I feel about remakes unless they are exceptionally good or bad with a preference for the latter.

Editor's note: a folksy, made for tourists kind of album with expectant cliches and good feelings. I guess it makes sense since it's located in Ohio and nothing is more boring than being there.
WEIRD WORLD RECORDS
Editor's note: it didn't take much foresight to see that this record would be as bad as its predecessors by Blowfly and that was the whole purpose of buying it. A raunchy and bawdy record with dated humor that is still better than anything being put out today. The sad part is that the internet is filled with copycat humorists rehashing old bits from classics such as this and trademarking it as their own. Which is why comedy is a such a dismal at nowadays.
