Exsanguination Blues comedy record
This is a little odd treat from my dad. It's a comedy record recorded by an actual medical doctor in the 50s and put out by Colonial Records, which had a lot of success with comedy records from that time (the most notable to me being from Andy Griffith). This one is pretty obscure but I remember my dad playing it to me when I was a kid. I think the singer Doug Harrell was an actual doctor and probably did this side project and then never recorded anything else.
My dad asked me to record it to mp3 for him when I was in California over Christmas. The music has kind of a southern folky flavor to it, and it's kind of entertaining, but mostly it's about the story and the humor - the kind your dad would probably like. Enjoy.
