Life Magazine: Sing Along with Millard Fillmore



From 1964, Life magazine's excellent album of band + vocal covers of vintage Presidential campaign songs going back 160 years. Life issued this version as a freebie to attract advertisers, and the same year Columbia Records sold it commercially in slightly different packaging. You'll tap your toe, you'll sap a tree, you'll wonder "Are ALL these lyrics stupid, or is it just me?" (Spoiler: the lyrics to campaign songs are always VERY, VERY STUPID.) Hat tip to Jason Klamm for loaning me this record from his collection - thanks again Jason!

  1. It may be VERY STUPID, STUPID and DUMB, but who better than Taylor to preserve this stuff. As always, perfect.
