Various - Don’t Take Your Cash to Town, John – Improbable Spoofs, Sequels & Answer Discs (2CD) (CD)€18,00
equels and Answer Discs first began to proliferate in the early 1950s, initially in the C&W and R&B markets, and proved sufficiently successful that within a couple of years, pop and R&R hits were also likewise being routinely spoofed and lampooned.
This wildly eclectic 2-CD set presents 29 big hits from the 50s and early 60s, each followed by its respective riposte.
Some of these were merely humorous, throwaway cash-ins, (e.g. The Romeos, Jeri Lynne Fraser, Carole King, Jo) although several turned out to be great records – and often, big hits in their own right – e.g. the sides herein by Gene Chandler, The Chantels, Skeeter Davis, Ted Taylor, Betty Cody, Goldie Hill and Rufus Thomas.
In some cases the original singers – e.g. Buddy Holly, The Bobbettes, the Hollywood Argyles/Gary Paxton – ’answered’ their own hits, although a great many came from unknown, obscure artists.
Several of these little-known rarities – including Morecambe & Wise’s unlikely ’We’re The Guys’ and Ben Colder (aka Sheb Wooley)’s spoof of Johnny Cash’s doomfest ’Don’t Take Your Guns To Town’ – make their CD debuts herein.
