What's up Doc?

If this one doesn't make you smile and laugh, there's probably something wrong with you and you can not be in my gang! The Carl Stalling Project: Music From Warner Bros. Cartoons, 1936-1958
Warning: There are small glitches at the end of track 11, the beginning of track 12, and towards the beginning of track 15. They are slight, but nevertheless audible. This is just a sad part of life when checking CDs out from the Library. I have a few methods to work around bad discs and they are fairly successful, but once in awhile there is a disc that is impossible to do anything with. I've honestly only had a handful of discs that I just gave up on. The glitches on this one are not that bad. I wouldn't have kept it if they were.
This is simply a selection of Carl Stalling's music from Loony Tunes Cartoons and it is truly mesmerizing. Listening to it without staring at the cartoon will show you how absolutely brilliant Carl Stalling was. The weird part is that you can listen to it and watch the cartoons in your head. Several of the tracks here are live so you can hear the click track and Stalling's direction to the orchestra. You'll recognize, "Powerhouse" and, "Dinner Music For A Pack Of Hungary Cannibals" right away. Those two songs have a secret place in your brain and they need to come out every once in awhile. There really isn't much more to tell you about this other than you have to hear it.
AMG Review
Amazon info - There's a Volume 2! So you should probably buy that since the liner notes are highly informative and entertaining.

Why thanks. It's true. Everything that I post comes from my own public Library and I don't even live in a big big city.

There is a certain sexiness to, "disgusted old ladies on desks smoking cheap cigars!" so I would kind of like that.

Once again, thanks again and drop by anytime.
