LP version. Includes bonus picture sleeve 45RPM 7". For over 20 years, your irrepressible host Rex and his legendary Fool's Paradise radio show on WFMU has held a grudge against the whole square world. Broadcasting from an undisclosed location in rural New Jersey in a fur-lined fall-out shelter located miles below the earth's crust, this weekly excursion to nowhere continues to proudly play nothing but greasy grooves from inane 45s; non-hit misfires, curveballs, and oddballs from the rock n' roll era. Yes sirree, those weird and warped ones about monsters, beatniks, chickens, apes, stewed moonbeams, and mosquito knees... And now, in the tradition of free love and nickel beer, Jazzman Records has teamed up with Rex to bring together a fabulous collection of his top spins. These are the songs that, by virtue of Rex's dogged persistence, have now achieved a kind of classic status that was surely never previously thought imaginable -- Fool's Paradise Favorites. 18 tracks featuring Premiers, Al Katraz, Jules Blattner, The Flock Rocker, Bob Strauss, Hurricane Harry, Glenn Willings, Dick Summer, The Bobby Borda Five, The Renaults, Wee Willie & The Soulettes, Billy Duke And The Dukes, The Orbits, Dan Kubiak, King Sid, Arnie Ginsburg, Sidney & Chimps, and Stringbeans.
