Jim Bakus- "I Need a Vacation/Delicious"
Wow, what a bad record. You may know Jim Bakus as Mr. Howell on Gilligan's Island, the voice of Mr. Magoo, or the Dad from "Rebel Without a Cause," but this is his um...single. My Dad says that he used to buy discount bundles of 45's, with good ones on the ends and crap in the middle. Here's one from the crap pile.
The music on "...Vacation" is actually okay, but Jim takes it beyond cheesy. "Delicious" is kinda creepy-ish, unlistenable some days and hilarious the next.
To be honest, I don't feel the need to write about this one...you'll see. Just give it a few listens before you think about deleting it. It becomes rewarding later.
