We're The Banana Splits Jack Eskew Decca DL 75075, 1968
We're The Banana Splits album cover

OK, we admit it - this kiddie record is a bit of an acquired taste and a minor obsession for us. Invariably damn hard to find and expensive, what do you get for your hard work digging it up? For a start, the classic 'Tra la la song'. After that, numbers written by the likes of Barry White and Al Kooper fight for attention, the best of which is the lovely 60s groovy pop-soul of 'You're the lovin' end'. It's a very mixed album stylistically (and says so on the sleeve) so have a listen first, but we can't get enough of the kitsch grooves on here! Oh, and in order to settle a few arguments: Bingo (the gorilla), Fleagle (the beagle), Snorky (the elephant), and Drooper (the lion)...

Overall Rating: 4
