Boots Randolph's signature tune, "Yakety Sax," was inspired by the sax solo in the Coasters' "Yakety Yak," and is much better known than its modest chart placement might suggest. Randolph had recorded "Yakety Sax" for RCA several years earlier without success, but his Monument recording clicked in 1963 and the accompanying gold-selling album spent nearly a year on the charts. Randolph's unique status as the man who popularized the saxophone in Nashville is reflected in half an album's worth of country songs like "I Fall to Pieces" and "If You've Got the Money." Randolph acknowledges the Coasters again on a version of "Charlie Brown," and gives the commercial folk craze the nod with renditions of "Cotton Fields" and "Walk Right In." "Cacklin' Sax" is a novelty number on which Randolph imitates the sound of a chicken with his versatile horn. The album is split into two halves, with the slow songs grouped on the second side, and the first half is the clear winner of the two.
How can this whole review not ONCE invoke the words "Benny Hill"?!!?!?!
That's right folks -- you may have gotten here by accident and not realized the "Yakety Sax" is more conventionally known as "The Benny Hill Show Theme Song," but that's the truth! If you're looking to chase scantily clad girls around in fast-motion or shake buxom women's hands extra-vigorously, this is the album for you!!
entertaining funny worth buying and great
Yakety Sax - Boots Randolph
Wow! Boots Randolph. He was one of the giants that recorded on many other artist albums. If you listen to any of Elvis Presley's music from the sixties, if there was a sax, it was more than likely Boots Randolph's. What else can I say? Boots was the best!!!!
