The Price Is Right

Sexucational Songs, Scientifically Sung by Claudia Wheeler

I wasn't sure what to make of this Beacon records release when I first saw it for sale on ebay. Two weeks later it showed up in my mailbox and I'm still scratching my head. The Price Is Right, subtitled "sexucational songs scientifically sung by Claudia Wheeler", is certainly no children's record (note the message "for grown-ups only" in the upper right hand corner of the jacket), but on the other hand it's not the kind of crass underground recording typical of this genre either. Accompanied by a lovely pianist, Claudia Wheeler sings about the raunchiest subjects in the most dignified and ladylike way possible. Even the liner notes talk about how "the charm and beauty of Claudia is reflected in the songs on this unique album". Yes, she's charming, and beautiful, but that song about Little Boy Blue is just a bit too blue for high society, I would think.

I still can't figure out what about this record is supposed to be "scientific" or "educational", but I did find out (again by reading the informative liner notes) that Claudia Wheeler is a native of Detroit who started out as a dancer in "the best known clubs and theatres", and that Beacon Records president Joe Barns is confident I will derive as much listening pleasure out of this album as he had making it. That fits my budget!

Does this record have "Let Me Bang Your Box" or the words go like that on it?? I'm trying to find me a copy of that song but I'm not sure it's this girl that sings it. Let me know if anyone knows what I'm talkin' about... (05-12-2003)

Claudia Wheeler and Rusty Warren could blow my Horn any day.

I wish there were more records like this these days!

I wonder if the cover for this record was the inspiration for Herb Alpert's Whipped Cream and Other Delights? (04-03-2003)

Ok, you can blow it. Go 'head, blow it. YOUR CAREER, THAT IS! Wheeler (if that is the chik on the cover) is singing these songs about as much as she is....blowin' my horn. I think an investigation is in order... (08-08-2002)

Mark R. Hill (drmark7@juno.com) says:
While I can't verify the fact, it is my belief that the cover girl on the LP is not the singer, but in fact, Julie Newmar (aka. Catwoman.) Who did many modeling appearances before her stardom.
