Selections from 'Dody Goodman Sings?'

Last Friday in the middle of a post remembering the recently departed Dody Goodman I mentioned that I'd just then learned about the existence of an LP the comedienne had released back in the 1950's.

Buster of Big 10-Inch Record saw the post, and has very generously shared tracks from the album for us all to enjoy!

It's a pretty perfect little novelty album. Dody combines comedic and proper stage musical elements with a singing voice that sounds sort of like a cross between Blossom Dearie and
Darlene Edwards.

From the 'Dody Goodman Sings?' LP
(Coral Records, 1957), Listen to:

Tranquilizers

Today Will Be Yesterday

Jewel Song

Pneumatic Drill

I Always Say Hello

I'd Rather Cha-Cha Than Eat

- For a further track, 'April in Fairbanks', (also courtesy of Buster) follow link to People vs. Dr. Chilledair.

I visit your site when I get the chance and really like it, the combination of interesting art and music. I really like the Dody Goodman post and because of it I discovered Dr. Chilldair. Thank you for all the work you do.
