Reseña de álbum

Spike Jones' free-for-all approach, satirizing and parodying everything in sight, came into its own during World War II, a time when his humor provided needed relief for troops abroad and those waiting at home. Not Your Standard Spike Jones Collection brings together three discs (over three hours of music) of material from radio transcriptions recorded during the war. It isn't surprising, then, that a number of Jones' songs poke fun at the enemy, nor that his first gold record was "Der Fuehrer's Face." While Carl Grayson's delivery, complete with a bad German accent, is funny enough, Jones' band's musical commentary provides the perfect backdrop. Of course, certain songs like "You're a Sap Mister Jap" will seem offensive today, but these transcriptions serve as a historical document as much as entertainment. There are also great versions of classics like "Sheik of Araby" and "That Old Black Magic," with Jones and his musical partners turning the most romantic song inside out. Bells, whistles, trombones, and banjos raise a ruckus, reminding one of a New Orleans jazz band that refuses to take its work seriously. Listeners will also not want to miss such oddities as "Boogie Woogie Cowboy" and "City Slicker Polka." The 79 selections on Not Your Standard Spike Jones Collection provide a welcome overview of the bandleader's work from the 1940s and a nice snapshot of the era. ~ Ronnie Lankford, Jr., Rovi

Rare tracks for the Spike Jones collector

The only reason I don't give this giant set five stars is that it doesn't contain all of Spike's best tunes. But there are DOZENS of Jones rarities here that don't show up in many compilations, so for the Jones completist this is a must. If you are new to Spike Jones, I'd recommend that you start with one of the standard "best of" albums, containing the original RCA releases. Be warned that famous songs like "Chloe," "Glow Worm" and "Libestraum" are here, but NOT in the versions released in the US to regular audiences. These are alternate versions recorded for V-discs, which were sent overseas to entertain the troops on Armed Forces Radio. Probably just as funny, but if you're familiar with the originals, you may be disappointed. There are also a number of tracks which are moderately-funny filler, but not Spike's "A" list. Since I am a hard-core Spike-o-phile, I own all these tracks as well as the originals. They're always good for a laugh.

way to go

what a refreshing collection of timeless classics. i used to cry myself to sleep wondering why spike jones wasnt featured in the vast library of the itunes music store. i especially love quirky classic Chlo-E...which i know is going top the sure of it....


2 things wow-worthy

Lindley Armstrong Jones was a musical genius. In the wild and woolly days before multi-track recording, MTV, and certainly digital entertainment content, Spike Jones put together a top-flight musical organization that the world has not seen the likes of since. Known as the City Slickers, the emphasis was on comedy, primarily doing dead-on...
