"Tales From The Rhino is a virtual cornucopia of obscure rarities that venture into musical genres that were previously avoided by homo sapiens. However, where else can you find these classics?

"Whole Lotta Love" and "2001 Sprach Kazoostra" by the nimble throated Temple City Kazoo Orchestra.

The Honeys, featuring vocals by Diane Rovell, Ginger Blake (AKA Sandra Glantz), and Marilyn Rovell Wilson (Brian's ex-wife and mother of Carnie and Wendy) on the teen anthem "Running Away From Love".

"Bermuda" by Roky Erickson, former frontman of The 13th Floor Elevators (with a history of substance abuse similar to Syd Barrett's).

"Walk On The Kosher Side" by Gefilte Joe & The Fish makes Lou Reed lose sleep at night.

"Pipeline" by The Bombay Beach Boys makes me want to get out my boogie board, but I suffer from blunt abdominal trauma."
The early days of the hippest label ever...

"Wow. For anyone who likes novelty music this thing's an absolute gold mine--everything from the all-kazoo version of "Whole Lotta Love" to Seth Kirkland's "Famous Jews", which was a big hit on Dr. Demento but unreleased for years. In the meantime, Adam Sandler wrote a song that was more or less the same gag, but he had a record deal. Too bad for Seth. The second disc is a little less enjoyable than the first, but they're still very solid efforts and worth their weight in platinum for fans of Big Daddy, or Wildman Fischer, or any of the other stars in the Rhino galaxy. At last, a doo-wop version of the national anthem with CD quality sound!"
