"Buster Poindexter is certainly long on personality. He even has a little bit of talent as well. If you are looking for a light hearted party record, this one will fit your bill. Hit The Road Jack, Who Put The Whiskey In The Well and International Playboy are my three faves on here but the rest is pretty charming if nothing else.More of a novelty CD than anything else. However, it will give you a chuckle."
Do you wanna go berserk?

"Buster Poindexter was the lounge singer persona of former New York Doll David Johansen. He had a hit with "Hot Hot Hot", which isn't on this album. The best know song here is his cover version of Ray Charles' "Hit the Road, Jack", which was featured in that movie about escaped mental patients starring Michael Keaton. This is a decent album, but nothing spectacular. The whole album feels rather artificial, like the whole "Buster Poindexter" persona is a put-on(which it was)."
