I know the big question on your mind is as such; What kind of music does old slugstache sing on his debut LP? Well as you can hear from the track above (Childhood 1949) it's a mix of Peter, Paul and Mary, the soundtrack to The Last Unicorn, and a touch of country, with a whole lot of shit thrown in. A lot of it is "spoke sung" which worked for Rex Harrison in My Fair Lady, but on an music album it just makes Burt sound ...talentless.
But Burty Poo was far from talentless, just check out this cut song from Best Little Whorehouse in Texas called...wait for it...Where The Stallions Run. So cut Burt some slack, he's a damn icon. And one thing every icon needs under their belt is an album. So check that off your bucket list Burt.
I will leave you with this last spoke sung bit of brilliance. Thanks Burt...thanks.
