This is a good album by a very funny country duo. Speaking of which its also a very funny album. They led to people like Allan Sherman and Weird Al Yankovic. Theyre parody of Johnny Hortons The Battle Of New Orleons called The Battle Of Kookamonga is not only theyre biggest hit its pretty funny. So is How Much Is That Hound Dog In The Window which is a take on Patti Pages How Much Is That Doggie In The Window. Theyre parodys of Jo Staffords You BBelong To Me Tennesee Ernie Fords Sixteen Tons The Beatles I Want To Hold Your Hand and Elvis Presleys Heartbreak Hotel which is Heartbrake Motel and more just jokes about motels. So are the rest including The Billboard Song an original song you have to hear to believe. You Should get it.
What can I say? Homer and Jethro were completely unique. The lyrics to their songs are hilarious, but it you listen closely, you will also discover that both of them were excellent string players, especially Jethro Burns, who went on to teach mandolin after Homer passed away. My favorite is still "The Billboard Song", although many younger listeners may have no idea when the lyrics are all about.
These guys were nuts, and corny, and funny as all get out. "How Much Is That Hound Dog in the Winder" alone is worth the price of the whole CD, and there's plenty more. The only small problem for younger audience members is that they may have no idea what's being parodied. Tough. Find out. And join the laughing!
