ROBBIE THE WEREWOLF: Live at the Waleback (no label US 1964)

This is one of the rarest beatnik and monster-related lps. It was featured in the book "Incredibly Strange Music” (which is a guidepost to any collection like this). This is a small press, local record of a beat poet reciting in full werewolf get up at club in California in the early sixties.

Tracks :
1 Vampire Man
2 Drums And Guns
3 My Little Brother
4 Frankie Stein
5 That Judge
6 Censored Man
7 Count Dracula
8 Lucifer
9 Streets Of Transylvania
10 Rockin' Werewolf
11 Inside Story Of Flamenco
12 Tip-toe Through The Wolfbane
13 Censored Dooley

Live jawdropper bohemian folk comic "real person" with monster concept. Strummed guitar lunatic tunes about Frankenstein, the joys of werewolfdom, and Count Dracula. A cover to die for with serial photos of lycanthropic transformation. [RM]

--- Remarkable early private press LP that manages to be a folk LP and a parody of a folk LP at the same time. Half of it is monster-fan piss-takes on standards such as "Tom Dooley", "Tip toe through the tulips", other half is Robbie originals of varying quality, hitting an unforgettable apex with the echo-laden Count Dracula track, which warns us to "...watch out for those vampires, some of them are QUEER". Also daring for the time marijuana and sex jokes, and a general bohemian counterculture feel to it all. Some of his in-between song jokes aren't all that funny, but the Santa Monica crowd had had enough red wine & weed to cheer and laugh at pretty much everything, creating a nice vibe. Unique artefact, made even more compelling by the fact that this guy later turned up in big time band Clear Light. [PL]
