Andy & Pat's Groovy Cosmic Love Hour" was a popular live call-in television program from Dayton, Ohio that began in 1989 and continued off and on over the live cablewaves of the Miami Valley for over 20 years. Among its catalog of creations were its own unique novelty rock compilation CD releases as a special treat for fans, produced by Ace Detective Records for Big Beef Records. These releases include a host of rocking, weird and whacked out rarities often featured on the show over the years, compiling such thrift store oddities as Pennsylvania's easy listening heroes THE SPECIALISTS (performaing 60's classics in their own inimitable style), THE JERMS (not the Darby Crash-fronted version) doing a rippin' funked-up version of the great "Green Door", the annoyingly funny "Chip The Chimpanzee" and much more. There's even JIM BACKUS with the indescribable "Delicious" which must be heard to be believed. Great party albums featuring classic tracks you won't hear on ANY oldies station.
"Andy & Pat's Groovy Cosmic Love Hour Record Collection - Funky 45's"
The original Love Hour CD collection compiled by MC Ferret for Big Beef Records, featuring a host of rocking, weird and whacked out rarities often featured on the show over the years. Classic tracks you won't hear on ANY oldies station. A great party album and a popular item for fans of offbeat compilations.
"Andy & Pat's Groovy Cosmic Love Hour Funky Forty-Fives Vol.II"
More great rocking fun, as well as some just flat out strange obscurities culled from the cultural archives of America by Ace Detective Record's own garage rock guru MC Ferret. Volume II features many of the numbers he personally presented during his numerous guest appearances on the show, as well as some yet unheard exciting and entertaining additions to the collection. Another great party album and a fitting companion to the first volume in this entertaining series of recordings both inspired by and contributing to the classic cable television show of the same name.
"Andy & Pat first started televising The Groovy Cosmic Love Hour years ago on cable access in Dayton, Ohio. They discuss topics and issues ranging from the silly to the sublime. There is always a healthy dose of wacky background music being played culled from Andy and Pat's collection.
Over 20 cool and strange singles from the past grace this collection (32 tracks to be exact, clocking in at 72 minutes). Many of you will recognize the classic Jim Backus and Phyllis Diller cut "Delicious", but this disc also contains the seldom-heard B-side "I Need A Vacation." 95% of this CD is completely new to these ears. The Ideals do a '50s rock 'n' roll party stomp called "The Gorilla," The Specialists try their Free Design best on "Eleanor Rigby," Glenn & Christy do "The Wombat Twist," The Five Blobs sing "Rockin' Pow Wow," the Peter Pan Players rock out on "Chip The Chimpanzee.
There's lots more - and nothing you're likely to hear on your local oldies station. Hey! There's a monkey illustration on the cover, and pictures of toy robots on the inside, too! Now I sold ya!"
- COOL AND STRANGE MUSIC
"Twisted Ohio aesthetics applied to mix-tape magictime, as Andy & Pat compile their fave novelty Rock & Soul singles, most having some reference to food, monkeys or nonsense. TV toy commercial audio and cartoon kookiness add to a general plague-cloud of funky-fresh funk funkiness."
"If you are a fan of wacky 45s from the '50s and '60s, you will want to get your mitts on this CD release and let it's zaniness wash over you and make you free. There is a wealth of oddball music here that I've never seen comped anywhere else. Whatever happened to the Slough Boys, the Dinks, Barry Darvell, the Jerms, the Five Blobs, the Specialists, Peter Pan Players and the others whose "talents" are collected here? Hopefully, they were run out of town when these tracks were released. The sound quality is what you'd expect from scratchy old singles, but the subject matter and delivery is not what you would expect from humans emerging from sound studios with finished product. Twenty-six examples of glorious trash."
