GUEST,TJ in San Diego 'Naughty' Songs by Famous Folk (60* d) RE: 'Naughty' Songs by Famous Folk 22 Sep 09


Ref: Oscar Brand

Oscar put out eight albums of "Bawdy Songs and Backroom Ballads" back in the 1950's, I believe. I have heard more than a couple of songs from them in years past. Among the highlights were "The Winnipeg Whore," "The Hermit" and "The Good Ship Venus." "Blinded by the Turds" was another knee-slapper. Some accounts refer to the songs as bowdlerized, many of the originals being too rough even for Oscar.

I still have his album of sea shanties, put out during the same era.
