Strobe Talbot 20 Pop Songs

This is yet another Jad Fair outing, this time accompanying him on his musical pop cartoon voyage are Mick Hobbs and Benb Gallaher. The camp factor of this umpteenth Fair album is not as prevalent, instead it sounds more like a high school band joining forces with geriatrics to cover the early songs of the Rolling Stones, with the odd LSD flashback going on. If one is going to weed through the prolific catalogue of Fair, then they should consider obtaining this album, as it is more bearable and leaves you something to think about. But by the time you read this Fair will have released another album. He is to musical prolificacy what Screamin' Jay Hawkins was to fathering children. (Alternative Tentacles)
