Like a record made in heaven for guys like me, storied record collector Eddie
Gorodetsky shared his treasures for one brief and shining moment. These aren't
necessarily classics - they're not necessarily even good - but each and every
song is a bona fide rarity, and most of them are cracked, bent, and/or goofy.
Inbetween tracks, Eddie and friends toss in some dementia worthy of the twisted
tunes. Like most collectors, Edward has eclectic tastes, so the selection on Christmas
Party With Eddie G (1990) runs the gamut from "Donde Esta Santa Claus" (Latin
kiddie rock) to "Cool Yule" (hepcat beat poetry) to "Santa's
Gonna Shut 'Em Down" (surf punk) to several slabs of gin-u-wine rock 'n'
roll. Certainly not for the faint of heart.
