this one, this one, and this one coming soon – is sometimes the voice of a made-up character (as in the amazing “The Mogul”), but most of the time it’s just Dion narrating what he sees in the cadence of a child talking to his toys: patiently expositional, gossipy, and slightly scandalized by all the bizarre goings-on. Some of this comes off today as camp, but in fact a lot of this material remains deeply subversive and full of deathless one-liners. I finally scored a copy of this LP recently after a long search, but the record was badly scratched and practically unplayable. Fortunately others have digitized this out-of-print LP for your enjoyment. In the meantime, here’s a nice high-res, cleaned-up copy of the album artwork.
