Make horrid scars and gashes.


Wynken, Blinken and Nod and The Golden Rock-A-Twisters "Dance And Sing Mother Goose With A Beatle Beat" (Golden, LP-127, 1964)

With pops & clicks galore here's one of the many exploitation records cashing in on the Beatle craze of 1964 (fitting I guess, since it was 42 years ago this week that they famously arrived in New York). Despite the cutesy subject matter this is sorta similar to the Frankie Stein & His Ghouls releases on "Power" from the same time period; fairly generic & kid friendly studio-musician "Beat" music complete with a suggested dance listing after the title. No actual Beatle songs are adapted here (though there's a stray She Loves You-style "whooo" thrown in now and then), but that hasn't stopped these tracks from showing up on Beatle themed comps around the world. Note the weird similarity between the "Three Blind Moose" song and the rejected Decca audition version of the Beatles doing (Leiber & Stoller's) "Three Cool Cats"? Yeah, I guess maybe at the end of the day this stuff wasn't so far off.

I have this record but never heard it as its a 78 and i dont have a 78 speed on mu hi-fi. Unfortunatley Rapid Share is being cranky and wants me to wait 57 minutes to download! Any chance you can put it on You Send It or another file hosting website?

Sorry, didn't notice this comment 'til now.

Do you still need an alternate file hosting option?

Sorry to take so long to get back to you Jason. I have just figured out how to listen to my copy using Audacity to speed up the 45 to 78rpm. It sounds bit like Pinky & Perky now!

hi! i just came across this now while googling for Beatle Beat. I have that album! in 33! Haven't played it for decades, esp now that it's hard to buy, let alone find, a diamond needle for our turntable. :-( Nice to know someone remembers.
