Editor's note: what is this? Big band? Jazz? I don't like it but I do love the cartoon dolphin leaping on the back and the live shot photo of old Flipper McDoo on the front. Actually, I think his name is Bubbles. A shite name given by humans to a magnificent animal. Of course, the same dullards who gave him the name locked him in an aquarium. All right, maybe he was injured in the wild or some other schlock story but at least if you're going to pimp the dolphin out then at least give him the betterments of life. Like calling him a whale instead of a dolphin, Bob? Right. You caught me. I don't care about the fish or this record. Or you for that matter but here's a free album in spite of all the animus.

Sadly, I am really that angry! Screw that fish and ALL the readers!

Well if it makes you feel any better, I love your site and your choice of records. Feels like I'm looking through a record store. I usually only comment when I see something that interests me. You are not alone here. I think people who like these kind of records are probably a little nerdy and forget your need for feedback. I hope you keep up the brilliant work.

Your Pal,

Me

Thanks, pal. For every hundred or so records that I dig through in dusty bins only a handful make the cut. I usually record them after working a 10 hour shift so I'm as pleasant as a 1950s husband who is returning home to a house full of kids and an over-taxed wife. I'd probably lose some of the rancor if I had an old station wagon to match the mental time frame. As always, I appreciate the traffic you bring in and the comments left.
