My Name Is Hiram Lipshlitz
Label: Rainbow Morning Music
Barry Louis Polisar has a delivery that is somewhere between Tiny Tim, Howlin' Wolf and Bozo the Clown. While his acoustic guitar playing is simple and rhythmic, it's his vocals that carry the weight of these entrancing tunes. There songs collected here deal with monsters eating children and nose picking, but the track "My Mother Ran Away Today" is sadder than necessary.
