This post doesn't follow from the plan I mentioned in yesterday's update. Instead, it's something else entirely.
Today is the birthday of the Bubblegumfink! (you should really visit his blog
if you haven't already). I've found not only lots of great music on the Bubblegumfink blog, but lots of links and pictures and other things that are, well, keen! I probably wouldn't have found many of the blogs I've found (and now check out as regularly as I can call regularly) without going to Bubblegumfink first.
So when I saw it was the Bubblegumfink's birthday, I thought I should try to find something to post. Then I remembered, "I'm Mister Lester Keen. I can't ever find anything I want to post!" Then I remembered (thanks to ebay-a-day: an auction almanac
) that today is also the day The Red Baron first showed up in the Peanuts strip. Lo and behold, I actually have something related to this, and since it includes some kinda-sorta gummy stuff, plus it's on Peter Pan
, I'd post it.
So I now present: The Peter Pan Pop Band & Singers: Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron
1. Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron
2. This Is What We Learn In School
4. On Top Of Spaghetti
5. Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter
6. The Return Of The Red Baron
7. Puff The Magic Dragon
8. Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor
9. Doggie In The Window
10. Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport
You're probably amazed (if you know my usual... timeliness...) that I could get this together so fast. Well, there's a couple of caveats. First, you need to subtract 80 from the track numbers (they're going to be 81-90). This is because I pulled it off of an itunes compilation I made and it happened to be tracks 81-90. The good news is that the numbering more or less works out if you skip the first digit.
The second caveat is that I don't have the cover for this record (and I couldn't even find one online). My copy is just in a plain white sleeve with "SNOOPY VS RED BARON" written on it with a Sharpie. If enough people ask, I'll write "SNOOPY VS RED BARON" with a Sharpie and scan it and post it, but I bet with a little effort, you can replicate the magic yourself.
My solution is to use the cover of a book (that I don't have, but which I found a nice picture of on Google image search) that is called "Snoopy and The Red Baron." (Link is the book, it's at Mega this time around)
