Thanks so much for sharing. I had a HUGE nerd urge to hear these songs today. :)

NoReasonToGetUp said...

wow! Thanks so much for posting this! I first got this record from my parents in the 1970's and played it on my monotone winnie the pooh record player, lol. Such memories.....My fave is Snoopy vs the red baron, 2nd place, bird is the word.

It's been at least 30 years since I listened to that album when I was a child, but I'm sure Goofy Greats had the song "Green Tambourine" by The Lemon Pipers on it.

Rock The Jukebox said...

Awesome! These songs are the coolest. I'll have to add them to my blog...

Regarding "Green Tambourine," there was a one-album version of "Goofy Greats" ((the version with which i am familiar)), and that one had "Green Tambourine." I weep for its absence!

Rev. Nørb said...

The single LP version also had "Ma Nah Ma Nah," come to think of it.

Madeleine Lucy West said...

I've got the single LP on vinyl in front of me. Tracklisting:

Side 1:
Bread And Butter - The New Beats
Alley Oop - Hollywood Argyles
Loop Di Loop - Johnny Thunder
Wild Thing - Troggs
The Birds And The Bees - Jewel Atkins
Big Six - Judge Dread
Pretty Little Angel Eyes - Curtis Lee
You Talk Too Much - Joe Jones
Surfin Bird - The Trashmen
Mr Custer - Larry Verne
Funky Gibbon - The Goodies
Simon Says - 1910 Fruitgum Company

Side 2:
Snoopy V. The Red Baron - Hot Shots
Rockin Robin - Bobby Day
Bony Moronie - Larry Williams
Good Golly Miss Molly - Little Richard
Beatnik Fly - Johnny And The Hurricanes
Mule Skinner Blues - Fendermen
Nashville Cats - Lovin Spoonful
Western Movies - Olympics
Yummy Yummy Yummy - Ohio Express
Judy In Disguise - John Fred And His Playboy Band
Mony Mony - Tommy Jones And The Shondells
Nice One Cyril - Cockerel Chorus

That was it! I guess the reissue(s) is to do with licensing problems with half the original tunes.

Mars Barger said...

I had the 8-Track version and it definitely had "Green Tambourine" & "Ma Nah Ma Nah" on it.

Mary said...

We had the single version and as far as I can remember (and I've spent a lot of time working on it!), these were the songs on it, not in correct order. Still not the same as any listed here. I remember that we got it as a free give-away (with a real goldfish!) when a new drug store opened up.

Snoopy vs. The Red Baron, The Royal Guardsmen
Bread and Butter, The Newbeats
Little Green Bag, George Baker Selection
Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, Brian Hyland
The Name Game, Shirley's Gang
Beep Beep, The Playmates
The Lion Sleeps Tonight, The Tokens
Mr. Custer, Larry Verne
Mule Skinner Blue, The Fendermen
Rockin' Robin, Bobby Day
Ahab the Arab, Ray Stevens
Surfin' Bird, The Trashmen
Yummy Yummy Yummy, Ohio Express
Wooly Bully, Sam the Sham & The Pharaohs
1,2,3 Red Light, 1910 Fruitgum Company
Chewy Chewy, Ohio Express
Loop De Loop, Johnny Thunder
Mah Na, Mah Na
Yakety Yak, The Coasters
Alley Oop, The Hollywood Argyles
Green Tambourine, The Lemon Pipers
Nashville Cats, The Lovin' Spoonful
Simon Says, 1910 Fruitgum Company
Birds and the bees, Jewel Atkins

I may be forgetting some, but it definitely did have Green Tamborine and Ma na ma na. I may be forgetting a few. I finally just gave up on finding the original (looking for years!) and have just been buying the songs on itunes.

Madeleine Lucy West said...

From the comments about 'drug store' I'm guessing people are talking about a US version. Mine is the Kay Tel UK version.

Wicket said...

Okay i have looked over everyone's track list of this album but I'm positive that when i was a kid growing up i heard a version of does your chewing gum lose its flavor (on the bedpost overnight) but i don't recall who the band was that performs it, and despite my numerous google searches i have yet to find the version that was on this cassette. if any one knows i would greatly appreciate it. This would have been a US version

Craig Williams said...

@Wicket: Your album was issued by K-Tel in 1976 and has Lonnie Donegan's original version of "Chewing Gum" on Side Two. The album was called "Kooky Toones" and featured 24 original hits. It was also on a K-Tel album called "Wacky Westerns" issued in 1975.

I had this record in 1974 or '75.

Mary has most of the track list right, and it did indeed have Green Tamborine, but I don't think mine had Mah Na Mah Na.
