AT THE KMAKS, MCLAIN LEAD THE REVELERS

If you saw the LP above in a thrift store, you might pass it by. If you saw it in a thrift store, practically every thrift store, just about every time you were in a thrift store, you'd reach the point of resist fatigue. That's how it was before thrift stores were raided daily by collectors and eBay sellers. The record was inescapable, and at twenty five cents a pop, which thrift store LPs commonly were, it wasn't much of a risk. 

While the song that most people associate with the LP is "Day O" (believe me, even if you don't think you've heard it, you have), the favorite among my crowd was "Man Smart (Woman Smarter)".  You know when a party has reached fever pitch when this sucker is blasting to the level of distortion and a dozen or so of your blitzed friends are are singing along to it, beer spilling out of raised bottles with every swinging gesture. Try it.

Oh my goodness, if I saw that album in a thrift shop I'd snap it up (except I have most of the tracks already, so maybe I wouldn't). I remember these songs from the fifties and loved them then. I still do.
