A Stunning and Happy Accident

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. Candle Mambo is soft and sweet with touching lyrics, Tropical Hot Dog Night, again, is just amazing and exactly what the reviewer called it, a Miami disco. This album defies words, is sure to make you smile and wonder how you may have overlooked it for so long. Guilty as charged, pick it up, you're sure to be pleased you did.

Bat Chain Puller

It's hard to describe the genius that is Don Van Vliet. Of all his albums Shiny Beast is still my favorite.
