By The Beautiful Sea - Spike Jones And His City Slickers - Riot Squad
Label: Harlequin - HQCD01 • Format: CD Compilation • Genre: Jazz •
Noise reduction technology brings the music forward out of the surface noise so often associated with reissues of rpm records that suffered lots of wear and tear through incessant playback at house parties before the popularization of the long-playing phonograph record.
Because Spike Jones was such a relentless purveyor of corn, some collections inadvertently contain too much overbearing, annoying, and even embarrassing material; Riot Squad successfully avoids this pitfall. To be sure, more than half of these tunes are classic high camp, with "Horsey, Keep Your Tail Up" and "Never Hit Your Grandma with a Shovel" vying for first place in the outrageous title category "Horsey" also exists in a similarly silly Milquetoast - Helmet - Betty by Fred "Schnickelfritz" Fischer.
Another stroke of luck is the fact that George Rock spends most of his time doing curious things to his trumpet rather than singing in falsetto baby talk. Spike Jones rose to prominence during the Second World War, and established his reputation with flippant patriotic novelties like "You're a Sap Mr. Jap" and "Der Fuehrer's Face," featured here in a version whereby the tuba stands in for the duck call normally used to generate a raspberry at regular intervals in this anti-Nazi classic.
