(Not) Your Standard Spike Jones Collection Reviews

(Not) Your Standard Spike Jones Collection

Holiday blues comin’ on? Well, put a spike in ‘em! Here’s the zaniest, wildest and just plain sickest Collectors’ Choice Music exclusive yet—79 tracks from Spike Jones and his City Slickers! These represent Spike’s complete Standard Transcription sides, but these tunes are anything but standard; Mr. Jones brought his full bag of tricks for these non-commercial recordings (made in Hollywood during the early ‘40s). Add to that the fact that most of these have never been on CD or even LP, and any lover of Spike’s mayhem-filled mixture of laughs and hot licks is going to flip over this set! Notes and great pictures accompany this 3-CD walk on the wacky side from the greatest novelty band of all time.
