Most people think that "burlesque" means female strippers walking a runway to bump and grind beat. But that only fits the form in its declining years. At its best, burlesque was a rich source of music and comedy that kept America, audiences laughing from 1840 through the 1960s.
Some sources try to wrap burlesque in a mantle of pseudo-intellectual respectability. Yes, it involved transgressive comedy and songs, but the primary attraction of burlesque was sex . . in the form of ribald humor and immodestly dressed women. Although many dismissed burlesque as the tail-end of show business, its influence reaches through the development of popular entertainment into the present.

Hello Friends and Lovers,
Okay, there was this period of time when film projectors that project sound ALONG with the film were too expensive to afford for the working class theater manager, or for an "Education Class" -you'll find that a much cheaper slower projector is available and is MUCH more affordable version. Here's the kick, as he explains in the intro track, "...if you find youah film and recawrding are nawt correctly aligned, just simply turn owff your projecta for a second aw two to correctly sync the film once maw." It's kind of funny to listen to without all my "podcasty" stuff jizzing all over your ears. But you like it like that, don't ya, ya whore.... Daddy has got what you need. And you need more... HERE. There you go...
Pent-R-Books' "Film Documentary Series" - Sexual Pleasures
Pent-R-Books was a cheapo, X-rated publishing outfit based at 120 13th St in Brooklyn, in business from the late-60s (maybe before) through the late-70s. They published mainly adult fare disguised as how-to books, including a book version of Sexual Adventures in Marriage (written by one Rudiger Boschmann), as well as other titles such as The Full Color Guide To Sexual Pleasures A-Z, The Picture Book of Sexual Love, and Love's Photo Album.

This is only the first side of this little treasury treat of an album from STRAND RECORDS called STRIP ALONG WITH US "Authentic strip music for the discriminating stripper." I don't want to blow this burlesque music wad all at once so I am just going to "tease" the first side a little bit. (you see what i did there!!?)
STRIP ALONG WITH US is "sorta" like a soundtrack album with "Unidentified instrumental ensemble with master of ceremonies and audience reaction." -yeah right. Sounds like a total of 4 people in the "audience" -But who cares! Oh it has all the standard tunes of the time: "A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody", "Misty", "Sophisticated Lady", "Blues In The Night", "Night Train" to name 5... These is something about this album that I really enjoy. Is it the low budget-ness, the imagry of 1962 basement wood paneling, you can almost imagine with a bedsheet pinned over an archway... (that last one was my own regression) -Anyway, STRAND RECORDS has ties to our home here in Philadelphia. And here it is...
Strand was a New York label that started as a full-priced label distributed by Decca, but soon began specializing in budget issues. They were originally located, in 1959, at 680 Fifth Avenue in New York, but by 1960 had moved to 157 West 57th Street, New York.
The vinyl tended toward thick and cheap, with many imperfections. Much of the label's output -- but not all -- was "bargain bin filler." As with many of the other budget labels, the philosophy seemed to be "anything to sell records," and if that meant misleading the buying public, so be it. If that also meant using the tried-and-true industry practice of not paying artists - - or not even telling them their record had been released, then that worked, too. There are plenty of examples below, including putting out a Virtues album titled Guitar Boogie Shuffle, the name of their hit, when the song was not even on the album!
Eventually, the label moved to 905 N. Broad Street in Philadelphia, near their demise around 1965.
...There you go!
So this Podcast is for you and for all people who like to see striptease shows. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show IN YOUR MIND (MIND, MINd, MInd, Mind, mind) (mind)

SOMETHING WEIRD VIDEO
Something Weird Video first passed across my radar in 95, when I use to get ready to give a stellar performance in a shadowcast of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, in Mt. Ephraim NJ and Sandra Bernhard was hosting this TV show called "Reel Wild Cinema" on the USA Network. I was immediately hooked. Sadly, it only lasted 2 seasons. Sandra would have these amazing guests like Russ Meyers, Tura Satana, and Vampira just to name a few (I wasn't into Dweezil Zappa when he was a guest so I fast forwarded thru his interview)...
Something Weird Video is an American film distributor company based in Seattle, Washington. They specialize in exploitation films, particularly the works of Harry Novak, Doris Wishman, David F. Friedman and Herschell Gordon Lewis. The company is named after Lewis' 1967 film Something Weird, and the logo is taken from that film's original poster art. Something Weird has distributed well over 2,500 films to date.
Something Weird Video was founded in 1990 by Mike Vraney in Seattle, Washington. Mr. V first fell in love with exploitation cinema while working various jobs at several drive-in movie theaters and porno theaters as a teenager. The high school drop-out ran a comic book shop and produced concerts and film conventions prior to launching the label Something Weird Video in 1990. Something Weird has specialized in releasing a rich array of low-grade trashy out-of-the-mainstream independent fare on both VHS and DVD alike that runs the gamut from horror features to soft-core flicks to vintage classroom scare items to TV commercials to hardcore X-rated smut to theatrical trailers to even nudie reels and burlesque clips.
Something Weird even has a channel on Comcast Xfinity! Not to mention a growing list of truely brilliantly bad (but the good kind of bad) for instant download! I usually show some clips from SOMETHING WEIRD before we start The Peek-a-Boo Revue show, SOMETHING WEIRD always has fun eye candy for any party! I reccommend starting with something like this: WEIRD SAMPLERS

Okay most of the songs in this podcast came from a CD called Christmas Party With Eddie G. "They put this record on at Midnight. By 12:30 their lives were changed FOREVER."
I forget how I came across little gem. Surfing the net? Some blog that by chance mentioned it? Who cares! I was pulled to it. So much that I purchased it, must have been the weird Norman Rockwell-esque style album cover. It's almost like the portrait Norman Rockwell forgot to paint. "Christmas Party with Eddie G." ...(in oils). Once I got the CD in the mail, I IMMEDIATELY listened to it...and you know what, it completely reminded me of THIS little podcast. So I thought of you all out there sitting naked... Maybe wrapping your gifts, trying not to get your cat's hair on the Scotch Tape. If you HAVE scotch tape. (Packing tape works well for anyone that isn't in your family.... maybe some)
Okay, back to the CD. I didn't use all the tracks, I just give you a taste...a TEASE as it were. I *did* added some other Holiday tracks in their place to mix it up a little. Sadly Eddie G doesn't give and artistic credit on his CD but who the hell cares. But you can find his tracklist (with artists names) here.
I also tossed in some Kay Martin as well. Kay Martin was a model during the 60's. She eventually became a night club singer/entertainer and released a few albums of the "risque" variety. In between shows they recorded several live albums, their most popular being the 1962 Christmas album I Know What He Wants For Christmas... But I Don't Know How To Wrap It!
