I don’t usually like to post records that aren’t in my collection but I couldn’t resist this. It’s a 1990s reissue of Rudy Ray Moore aka Dolomite’s triple-x Christmas record from 1971. Unfortunately they saw fit to include “extra material” like new music on some tracks (Lip On, Black Cat), generic hotel-quality R&B that I could do without. If anyone with the original LP can educate me, I’m curious to know whether they took the vocal track or stand-up routines from the original LP and put new music under it, or whatever the deal might be.
Luckily they kept the original 70s soundtrack for the best stuff here – Night Before Christmas, Eatin’ Pussy, and St. Peter. In fact it sounds like they were all taken a reasonably worn copy of the vinyl.
Well it may not be a perfect reissue but can you really get took upset and serious over a Rudy Ray Moore record? No FLAC or 320 this time either.
Enjoy it and remember to play it for your kids and/or grandparents.
