Stumbling on this album entirely accidentally was on eof the happiest accidents in recent memory. I first overheard Tropical Hot Dog Night as background music elsewhere and was instantly hooked by its infectious melody and odd accompanyment of Van Velit's voal style. It somehow blended perfectly and that was all it took. Picking up a copy of this on vinyl (yep!) I immediately fell in love with the albums diverse range of styles.
