Surprise for the kiddies. . . .

"Mungo Jerry still gets a lot of play around Chicago "In the Summertime.. ." I bought this CD at the request of my kids, ages 5 and 8, who heard the song and begged to have it. Imagine my surprise when the CD arrived and I found that the fifth song, an instrumental, is listed on the liner and CD as "Motherf--ker blues" only without the blanks. Really a shock, since the CD is full of bouncy and kid-friendly music. So, bottom line: it's cute music; parents, get out your indelible markers. . ."
I was so excited to find this!

"The works of Mungo Jerry are so obsure that I thought I would never find it on CD. I've got my Mungo Jerry on vinyl that I've been keeping for nearly 30 years and I would only play it to make tape copies; I didn't want to wear it out. I was really happy to find it at Amazon.com. In all the years I've owned this album I've never heard anything like it; this is a very unique album. I was also glad to discover that the CD version has "Mighty Man" on it. I had this only on two very scratched 45's. (It was on the flip side of "In the Summertime.") I can't pick a favorite song; but if I had to choose, I would say "Maggie." This is a very different and truely great album."
An update of a classic summer song

"Everybody should have heard this classic summer song at one point or another in their lives, so no doubt you'll know who Mungo Jerry is. This CD single, "In The Summertime" features three updated remixes of the title song. Although the new version are acceptable, the purists will be happy to discover the original - and best - version is tagged on at the end. This is the one I prefer to play. Not a bad effort though.Jon."
