We're The Banana Splits
Your childhood TV rock-n-roll idols, on vinyl!
One of the greatest things about the music of the 60's is how it accessible it was to just about anyone. The cool kids had the Beatles and the Stones; middle America watched the Monkees; the hippies had the Dead and Jefferson Airplane; even Mom and Dad could swing to a homogenized version of Lennon & McCartney done up by Enoch Light or Tony Bennett. And for the toddlers, there were these weirdos, the Banana Splits.
I was suprised at how good some of the songs on this hard to find LP are (thanks to my friend Gary who let me borrow his copy). I'm not saying the Banana Splits were the next Beatles, but compared to the kind of music they make for kids today (the Barney theme comes to mind) this stuff kicks ass. Let's hear it for Fleagle, Bingo, Drooper and Snork!

I live in Hermosillo,México; My family used to go to Nogales, Az. very often, I had the luck to saw The Banana Splits Show in USA and México , I mean, hearing the voices in Spanish and English was so cool, the jokes in spanish had a latin american mood, not a straigth translation from english.
The Banana Splits was my favorite show in my childhood. C ya, (03-09-2004)
