"I am very glad I came across this Cd. The 1st time I heard it was 1987. I was 16yrs old, and just realizing I was gay. My wise old aunt gave me this tape on a hunch I was like her, along with some Judy Fjell tapes. This tape is hilarious. They are witty and intelligent. "Must've Been Drunk" and "Wimp" are my personal favorites. The words to "Drunk" have always stuck in my head like a good "CAMP" fire song should. And "Wimp" just cuts to the heart of the matter on everyones feelings of insecurity, but pokes fun at it in only the way Ron & Paul could. The "Dont Use Your Penis For A Brain" may now be a bit dated with the Ronald Reagan mention, but it is still true. Just fill in any current politicians name. "Carnival People" ,while it may be a tad on the schmaltzy side, is still a gem of a little story about theatre folk and ourselves to for those of us who go through or days pretending and acting. For the nostalgic ones out there, this is a must to have, along with the necessary copy of their album "Emotional Rollercoaster""
Not just for gay men

"Playful yet powerful these boys provide the sort of solas in troubled times as I garner from Pete Seeger and Peter, Paul and Mary only much funnier and more irreverent. I'm a mundane, suburban housewife in a southern banking town. In the 20 years I've been listening to R & P I've found that in addition to being great music, R& P's albums make a fine tool for screening new acquaintances for homophobia and acute right wingitis."
Silly, witty, fun

"This is a great CD, it's hilarious, full of kitsch humor that's completely over-the-top. It's a pretty good CD to give to someone that might just be coming out, or to anyone who you think could use a little insight into what it's like to be gay. Some of the lyrics are a little dated, but, for the most part, the songs are about problems/issues/joys the gay community faces to this day."
