Worst Record I've Ever Heard

Guest Dan

Found this in my records the other day, have no idea when or why I bought it

Daddy Do It Good by Jim Faulkner on Para West from Paramount, Ca.

Have you ever heard anything so rubbish...the backing band are competent but the singer and the engineer/mixer must have been stoned

Right up Pete-S's street

Will send a tenner to anyone who can post up anything worse*

*has to be IMO which gives me a get-out!

God that is BAD Dan!, shame really as you say the backing is quite a nice tune but whoever Jim Faulkner was I do hope we never hear of him again, right Pete...get to work on that backing track! :ohmy:

er, it's a bit like this...check out the totally incongruous drums at the start

it's called leave me alone'. i can imagine jim faulkner playing a gig and shouting out 'what shall we play next?'

'just fucking leave me alone' would be the response...at which point the demon drummer would get to work

unbelievable that it was ever made, esp in the 70s with the energy crisis and oil running out. this is a waste of good fossil fuel

it's the sort of thing the cia used to play to people as a form of psychological torture

what the f*** were they thinking? my theory is they were a bunch of rich kids who found some acid and a studio

That's pretty poor...always a mistake letting the local gang sing backing vocals on your record...no matter how much they threaten to kick your head in [although the lead singer sounds like they've already battered him!]

Several 45's have tortured my lugholes with poor production/engineering. One that immediately springs to mind is The Captions on Millage, the band give 100% on a rockin stormer only to have mr. misery behind the mixing desk totally neuter it with his underwater recording technique, he then proceeds to foul up again by smothering the beautiful slowie on the flip with an aural pillow.

The absolute worst of its' kind has got to be The Del Chords on the less than accurately named 'Mr. Genius' imprint. 'Your Mommy Lied To Your Daddy' is a record from the twilight zone of lo-fi nightmares. This is a real shame as it's a decent song let down by a turgid sonic coating which is so bad you think your hearing's packed in. Bizarrely the engineer get's credited in great big letters on the label, maybe it was the band's way of pointing the finger of blame!?

Oh...and whoever engineered Nomad Woman on Golden Hit should've been sacked...or was that a pressing flaw?

ahh but I never said I liked it. By "not that bad" I meant not as bad as you lot are making out. Yeah it's piss poor on the vocal front but it's a nice backing track, which to me is 50% of the record thumbsup.gif

If you can bear it wait for the - shall we call it - Brass Section. Hard to believe this came out on major label in 1968.

!!Warning!! - This record is really terrible. Sensitive sorts should NOT download this MP3!!

Dan...the Faulkner record is hilarious! I almost pissed my pants on that one! He almost sounds like some gay pimp. So bad it's good. You almost wonder if it was a joke.

I'm definitely interested in that 45 if it's not too expensive. Would like to have it just as a novelty.

Apparently Jock Mitchell's "Nomad Woman" was released on a clean pressing on Golden Hit, according to Tim Brown. I'd love to hear it, as I think the record is, potentially, awesome. Has anyone else ever had one?

Yeah great shame mr trek, I think it's a bloody good record spoilt by........

well I can't improve on your description so I won't even try but.........

I believe it was issued on a different label, anybody know if it was a different mix or recording? Think Del Chords went on to become the Magnificent Men by the way.

RE: the DelChords...

Correct. Dave Bupp was in that group and those guys went on to be Magnificent Men. The record was issued first on Mr. Genius and then on Impala records. I have both copies. To be quite honest, I bought it years ago for the ballad side. I still think that it's a fine example of soulful doo wop. After losing interest in doo wop and gaining interest in northern, I started flipping all of these records over. It worked for the Augustine Twins, but "Your Mommy Lied to Your Daddy" doesn't do it for me at all. "Everybody's Gotta Lose" is a killer. Let me know if you all want a sound file.

Dave-getting a record together for the "terrible" swap.

Not sure if its the worst but would definitely be in the Top 10 -

it sounds like 2 or 3 records playing at once. And if you like this,

they did release an album -
