Review By Phillip Sametz,Limelight Magazine,March 2006

The reputation of Spike Jones has altered dramatically from the time when an enjoyment of his bizarre achievements was a guilty pleasure. His versions of such standards as Chloe and The Glow Worm, replete with cow bells, gun shots, gurgling noises and belching, in which popular and classical singing styles were mercilessly derided, may have been weirdly amusing in the 1940s, but surely had become curios by the CD era.

At least I thought so until one Jones compilation was released in the early '90s on RCA's very cool sub-label for contemporary composition, Catalyst, sporting lengthy insert notes by reclusive novelist Thomas Pynchon. Clearly, something had changed.
