The Strugglers, Two Beers And Everybody Sings, Warner Brothers 1257, 1959

What was probably a fun album to play at a college party in 1959, a high school party in 1969, or a junior high school party in 1979, is now a very funny Goodwill record to look for. Apparently, there really was a band called The Stugglers, who played old-timey songs in a real club called The Red Garter, in some made up town they called San Francisco.

There’s really not anything of interest here for the record listener, or the music buff.  It’s just an odd collection of drinking tunes that had a mild impact on the few people who ever heard it.  Really, at this point, it’s the kind of thing you’d see framed at a brew pub somewhere.

I don’t mean to put it down, it’s just that the title of this record is so preposterous, and then to assume that after getting blotto on two beers, “everyone” will sing I Want A Girl Just Like The Girl That Married Dear Ole Dad…it is to laugh.  Now if you’ll excuse me, I need a third beer.
