The Jingle Workshop: Midcentury Musical Miniatures 1951-1965 (Clear Vinyl)
Two compact platters of promotional jingles of the strangest flavors! A smorgasboard of unheard music from the eccentric icon paired with his wife Dorothy Collins, Mel Tormé and more! Who knew jingles about Krystal Hamburgers, beer, & ExLax could be so utterly delightful?! Packaged in a hardbound book-style jacket including a replica of an original '60s article about Raymond, new notes from the executor of his estate, and photos galore!
In addition to being a pioneer of early electronic music, Raymond Scott generated hymns to hunger, odes to pudding and pilsner, and crafted carols for countless other products, elevating the form of advertisement to an art. If Zappa had written music for commercials, it's not hard to think his approach would have been similar! This first ever collection contains varied styles in both instrumentation and vocalization, previously unavailable electronic works, and more.
A first-ever collection of Raymond Scott's 1950s-60s TV and radio commercial jingles - with vocalists and announcers, instrumental beds, demos, outtakes, guide tracks, and alternate versions. Transferred directly from master tapes in the Raymond Scott Collection at the Marr Sound Archive.
Products may contain soy, wheat, dairy, or Mel Tormé.
Includes over an hour of glorious rhapsodies for retail, including catchy calls to consume Sprite, Hamm's Beer, Tareyton Cigarettes, Vicks Medicated Cough Drops, and more!
