Life Is Just A Bed Of Neuroses - Katie Lee with Ray Martin
Katie Lee with Ray Martin And His Orchestra
RCA Victor LSP-2214
Oh man, to bad, this LP is available on a CD. A CD that feature 35 Lee tunes (tunes from this album and Songs Of Couch And Consultation) so I will not be posting a sample.
Normally I don't get into comedy albums and music... but this project is different. It's insane. Well, OK... you can see where I'm going with this review.
The presentation of the vocals and orchestration isn't over the edge. The vibe is easy listening/broadway/space age with very pleasant and straight forward vocals by Lee. The contrast and humor are born from the lyrics which are terrific. And, if we might consider that behavioral science terms weren't common in most households in 1960... this record, to my thinking... would seem crazy to most.
The whacked thing is that the songs seem as fresh and funny now as back in the day. They don't make neuroses like they used to! Visit Lee's website: http://www.katydoodit.com/
