Overview

Dr. Demento 20th Anniversary Collection: The Greatest Novelty Records of All Time gathers two discs' worth of highlights from the five-volume Dr. Demento Presents series, as well as some of the good doctor's other favorite novelty singles. Anyone familiar with Demento's show will instantly recognize the Firm's "Star Trekkin'," Barnes & Barnes' "Fish Heads," and Darrell Hammond's "Wappin'," while Bobby "Boris" Pickett's "Monster Mash" and Sheb Wooley's "Purple People Eater" are among the novelty classics that have become part of the mainstream pop culture canon. Weird Al Yankovic's "Eat It," Ray Stevens' "Gitarzan," Julie Brown's "The Homecoming Queen's Got a Gun," Steve Martin's "King Tut," and Allan Sherman's "Hello Mudduh, Hello Fadduh! (A Letter From Camp)" are some of the other highlights of this fun collection, which is arguably the only novelty rock album most people will ever need.

I'm so glad I found this! Years ago I worked at a firm who had a very demanding client with a guaranteed 4 hour on site response when they had a problem. Every Friday afternoon shortly after 1:00 our office would celebrate if we hadn't heard from that client because that meant we could all go home on time. We celebrated by playing recordings from Dr. Demento's radio show!

I remember listening to this many years ago on the radio. I use to put the transistor radio under my pillow to listen so my mother would not hear the radio playing when it was to be bedtime. This is a great CD if you like to have fun songs to listen to and a little bit on the bad side of life. very enjoyable.

If you want something to aid in overcoming a bad situation, listen to a Doctor Demento CD! My one complaint is not being able to pick a single favorite song. They're all great! Fun for the entire family and soothing for long drives. Tell your freinds and neighbors! Begin your Demento collection today!
