JOHN TRUBEE (BLIND MANS PENIS SINGLE)

I'm posting this for the flip side of this record. This single has hung around my collection for a quite a long time because for some reason, I find A Call To A Motel funny, and its just weird enough to include in my Halloween celebration. In 1976 John Trubee was at home in Princeton New Jersey and while reading the back pages of the Midnight Globe which is a magazine sorta like the National Enquirer. In the back pages there was a little classified music add that said "send your lyrics to Nashville and make 20,000 dollars royalties". Even when he was 19 years old he realized that was a scam and it was just some sort of ridiculous come-on. So as a joke he sat down on my dead grandfathers typewriter and typed out the most obnoxious obscene idiotic lyrics he could think of off the top of his head and talked about Stevie Wonder's private parts as well as stream of consciousness weird stuff. Sent it to Nashville. He thought they'd send him a letter back telling him that he was crazy, really that’s really what he wanted originally. But they sent him a letter back saying “We would like to record this, please remit 79 dollars 95 cents and we will record it for you”.
