As soon as I decided what the new addition to the CD title was going to be, I knew that this song had to be included. There have been a lot of mad scientists over the years, but this one approaches the role with such enthusiasm.
This is an obscure 1958 novelty record from the Hollywood, CA’s Dore label, the year of the label’s creation. Who The Zanies were is a mystery, but the song was composed by Jay and Leila Newman. Herb Newman was one of the founders of the label, so maybe there is a relation there.
