Daddy Dewdrop

Here's a bubblegum one-hit wonder for you. Daddy Dewdrop (Dick Monda) had a hit in 1971 with the song "Chick-A-Boom (Don't Ya Jes' Love It)", a song that was originally featured on the "Groovie Goolies" television show. However, before a Goolies album could be released, Monda put together a group of studio musicians to record his own version, which made it all the way to number 9. There's some other odd little bubblegum numbers here too. Hope you enjoy it!

Here's the track list:
  1. Chick-A-Boom (Don't Ya Jes' Love It)
  2. 5-Card Stud
  3. March of the White Corpuscles
  4. Strike
  5. John Jacob Jingleheimer Smith
  6. Fox Huntin' (On the Week End)
  7. Diggin' on Mrs. Jones
  8. Abracadabra Alakazam
  9. Johnny Do It Faster
  10. Migraine Headaches

Great share, Tony! I love this album. I hope the Goolies' version of "Chick-a-boom" shows up on the upcoming DVD set in October!

The version of John Jacob Jingleheimer Smith is different here than on the original B-Side to the Chick -A- Boom single. Thanks for the tracks!

Many thanks! I have been trying to find this album for years! I used to listen to this music on WkLX-am in the early 70"s.

I'd heard there were other DD songs but never heard any, so I've often wondered whether the rest could be as good as Chick-a-Boom. Maybe it's a bad sign but I'm really surprised to learn they are...I just never expect that anymore. Thanks for the pleasant surprise!
