Kip Addotta - Life In The Slaw Lane

Kip Addotta came from nowhere to center stage of the novelty song world with "Wet Dream", a lengthy narration filled to the gills with nautical puns.  It was a huge hit on the Dr. Demento show & has seen several official releases on novelty compilations.  His follow-up effort was called "Life In The Slaw Lane".  It's a similar lengthy narration - filled, this time, with puns about vegetables.  It was not the rousing success that his first effort had been.

I dug through my vast archives to find my copy of People Weekly from July 14, 1986, which featured a nice two page article about Mr. Addotta.  It mentions his 6-ft inflatable Godzilla and that his next song would be about colors.  As far as I know, it never happened.

You get the video from a U-matic source.  It's not perfect, but it's almost certainly the best version that you'll ever find.  I actually own an original LP of "Life In The Slaw Lane".  It's hard to believe that it was almost 30 years ago ....
