Considering Election Day is Tuesday, I thought I'd throw a few political albums on here for you. But this being Way Out Junk, you can count on it not getting too deep. This album from 1966 features the voices of then President Lyndon Johnson, his wife Lady Bird, Vice President Hubert Humphrey, and a number of other political figures of the day. The catch here is that their voices are set to music. We're not talking about stirring patriotic music behind inspirational speeches. No, we've got sound bites that are somehow made into songs. It's terribly silly, but would you expect anything less from me?
Here's the track list:
- The Humphrey-Johnson Tap Routine
- Good Evening, Welcome Neighbors
- Return to Proven Ways (The Rev. B.M. Goldwater)
- The Immortal Words of L.B.J.
- It's Pain to Train a Texas from the Plain
- Be Forthright, Bobby Kennedy
- You Don't Have Nixon to Kick Around Anymore
- Lynda and Luci Lullaby
- The Wedding
