Gobble, Gobble

The Medved Brothers' Golden Turkey book series hasn't dated very well thanks to its bullying tone, but at least it did turn a spotlight on some very entertaining movies that might have otherwise slipped through the cracks. Late in the game but welcome nonetheless was the 1985 Rhino Records vinyl release of The Golden Turkey Album, featuring 16 catchy ditties from "bad" '50s and '60s favorites like The Lemon Grove Kids Meet the Monsters, Wild Guitar, Eegah!, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, The Creeping Terror, and much more. Though a few were obviously ripped from the films rather than the soundtracks, others came out sounding quite nice. On your next date, be sure to crank up "Hey, Look Out! (I Wanna Make Love to You)" and see what happens.

Thanks for posting this one... I sold my vinyl copy at a show years ago (for a pretty penny) and my cassette copy has long since bit the dust. Love this album!

I'll happily join the chorale of thanks on this one. I've been dying to get a recording of "Lonesome" ever since seeing it excerpted in IT CAME FROM HOLLYWOOD... and all those songs from Steckler and Hall films are great, schlocky fun.
