Be very careful

when looking for your favorite oldes. The crooks who own the masters are very tight with them. I was looking for Leapy Lee-found him-Original-I don't know-but close.

It Is Sha-Na-Na

The previous review is incorrect - this version of The Witch Doctor is clearly a cover by Sha-Na-Na (lead singer Bowser's voice is unmistakable).

Oldies galore - of the crazy kind

The only mistake I found on this album (so far - not sure of the rest) is "Witch Doctor". THEY credit Sha Na Na; the REAL credit goes to The Chipmunks (a/k/a Ross Bagdasarian). I've been finding errors like this in eMusic; I wonder who types all the info in?

They Say All Music Guide

This lighthearted K-Tel release collects ten novelty hits of old together on one wacky disc. Kicking off with the rollicking saxophone of the Coasters’ “Yakety Yak,” Tacky Tunes hams its way through Sha Na Na’s “Witchdoctor,” the Bermudas’ “Short Shorts,” and Jimmy Gilmer’s beatnik fantasy, “Sugar Shack,” among others. It’s an enjoyable set that’s sure to plug a few holes in your singles collection. – Johnny Loftus
