"Legs" Larry Smith: "Springtime for Hitler" b/w "I've Got a Braun New Girl (In God Wet Rust)"
And what was missing from Mel Brooks' classic original "Springtime for Hitler" that only Legs Larry Smith could provide in 1978? A disco version. (And an appropriately esoteric flip, a power-pop duet between Dolph and Eva.) One of the great 7" 45s emitted from ex-members of the Bonzo Dog Band in the 1970s like heavy metals from art-school-educated uranium.
