Songs In The Key Of Z Volume 1&2 - Various Cherry Red

Songs In The Key Of Z Volume 1&2
Songs In The Key Of Z is a very unique compilation of "Outsider Music". Each track, although maybe lacking in tunefulness and musicianship, has an abundance of earnestness and passion Outsider Music has caused quite a stir recently, Channel Four have been airing a series of mini documentaries about outsider music and all of the artists featured on the TV show are on the two albums. Also, the Wesley Willis song “Rock ‘N’ Roll McDonalds” was recently used in the smash hit film, “Super Size Me”. This fantastic release combines Volumes 1 & 2 onto a 2 CD collection for the first time and features (amongst may others) the uninhibited coyote howls of the legendary Stardust Cowboy, the star which is Daniel Johnston, a romantic duo between Tiny Tim and his wife Sue, Joe Meek's ultra rare wobbly "Telstar" vocal demo, The Shaggs aboriginal backwoods track and Captain Beefheart's "Vampire Suite" The release of this CD also ties in with the 300 page "Songs In The Key Of Z" book also published by and available through Cherry Red.
