more odd ball trivia stumbled across on travels, Bit of background on dore label and boss

A unique label featuring the comedy stylings of several artists famous from radio and television -- including Hudson and Landry, Victor Buono, Jim Backus, Joey Reynolds, Lew Bedell -- mixed with classic R & B acts like Rita and Tiaras, The Superbs, The Entertainers IV, Starbright, Kenard, The Debonnairs, Ray 'Ace' Acevendo, Fridays Child, The Jades, and Jenny B.

With all that alcohol in him, to this day he is known to all as "The Enternal Flame." The only important thing that happened to Lew between the ages of four and fifteen is that he lost his virginity when he was eleven to a thirteen year old girl named Cookie.

Am I the only person who thinks The Superbs 'The Wind Is Blowing' on Dore is an absolutely monster dancer? Never, ever heard it played anywhere (may be wrong of course). I've got most of the (soul) output on Dore and this is the best of the lot IMO.

So - has it been played by anyone?
