Shooby Taylor

March 2, 2006

April Winchell has a treasure trove of found objects. Ok, they’re not, she has a whole repository of peculiar and wonderful songs. Here is one of some dude named Shooby Taylor who, in April’s words: “showed up at a studio one day with a bunch of LPs, and proceeded to record himself scatting over them (and I mean that literally). He may have gone to his reward, but his oeuvre remains.”

I hope you’re ready for a laugh. What you are about to hear is Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison” with Shooby “singing” along.

Well . . . perhaps Shooby should get a translator gig in the State Department? He’s certainly in touch with something foreign and dangerous! – LArry

There is a man moving in his own universe, heedless of what is going on in this one!

I played this for Mark Carlson last night: we laughed and laughed, and just couldn’t stop!
