Who'd-a thunk it?

"Between release of this album and now, Cheech Marin became a bona fide actor and co-starred with Don Johnson on "Nash Bridges". I can just hear Pedro de Pacas' sidekick Man; "Pedro becomes a pig? Bummer, man!" This album was my follow-up purchase to their first album after hearing the duo's Holiday hit "Santa Claus and His Old Lady" the previous year. I bought their earlier album looking for that track, and to this date, no C&C album has featured it. You have to get Dr. Demento's "Greatest Christmas Novelty CD Of All Time", but that's another story. This album grabs you from the first track "Sister Mary Elephant", and I was reminded of it this past Sunday in church, where four baptisms were held. The predictable noise level caused by siblings present forced the Father to practically bellow his sermon, despite the p.a. system, and I commented to my choir director that the padre could have used the help of The Screaming Nun; "Good morning, class...Class....SHUUUUTUUUUUUP!!!" You will also get a foretaste of Marin's versatility in the next album "Los Cochinos", when Marin uses a great Quebecois accent to interview Chong in the part of a crab louse "Buster da body crab" in one sketch on that release. A lot of the humor in C&C's work is sophomoric to say the least, aimed at the Animal House demographic whose sons watch Comedy Central's Carlos Mencia today, but the content of these men's humor obscures the fact that they are brilliant."

"I bought this record upon its original release (circa 71-72) at the tender age of 12, it was my parents reward for having cursed me with my first pair of glasses.Mom hated it....dad *loved* it...and he was a 20 yr Army Vet (translated-POT IS DEADLY mentality).I challenge even William Bennett not to laugh at this."
