Among the highlights are the iconic "Sun Brimmer's Blues," the kazoo-led "Mississippi River Waltz," the hardly subtle "She Stabbed Me with an Ice-Pick," and the accomplished and haunting "Fourth Street Mess" by the Memphis Jug Band, and three classic sides from the Jug Stompers, "Minglewood Blues," the bubbly "Feather Bed," and "Viola Lee Blues." More kazoos, jugs and banjos than you can shake a stick at, with great vocals and solid songs.
