Thanks for the link! Now I have to find a copy of the King George hotdog song. :)

I was listening to the podcast of Muriel's today at work and my jaw fucking hit the floor when I heard "Jack's Broth." Oh my god. Damn. I...I...I'm speechless. That's just about the best song I've ever heard anywhere ever.

I want to thank you deeply, from the bottom of my heart for this. Now this poor college student, soon to be a poor grad student, must find some way to come up with 200-300 dollars to buy West Indian Rhythm.

"Hot Dogs Made Their Name" (the track that Bjorn was looking for) is now available on an mp3-only album of Houdini's late 30s/mid 40s stuff. I've seen it on iTunes and Amazon and suspect it will soon show up on eMusic....
