ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Clubbo's CD sampler vol. 1, which spans 40+ years of pop music history, represents the musical triumphs and aesthetic catastrophes that distinguish Clubbo from many other, lesser-known independent labels.

From Rockfinger's arena-rock smash "Feel It" to the incomprehensible "Feelingful Mood" by Tiger Love, these thirteen tracks by ten-and-a-half Clubbo artists gives listeners a piquant taste of the label's unique sounds.

About Clubbo:

For more than 40 years Clubbo Records has epitomized the maverick spirit of the old-school independent record labels.

In today's era of test-marketed, formula-bound pop culture, it's easy to forget there was a time when the soundtrack of daily life was composed not by multinational media conglomerates, but by low-budget visionaries like Clubbo co-founders Chet Clubb and Morris "Bo" Bogerman.

In many ways, Clubb and Bogerman were no different from the era's other indie-label opportunists, who would tirelessly scour the streets for any music that might generate slightly more cash than it cost to produce. Like compulsive gamblers, Clubbo would bet on anything: novelty and kiddie discs, global exotica, bandwagon-jumping quickies.

What set Clubbo apart was the label's occasional knack for generating music so far outside the mainstream that the mainstream had to shift its course in response. As a result, the Clubbo catalog ranges from well-loved (or at least well-known) hits to freak-bait for the record-collecting lunatic fringe.

After languishing for several years as a minor holding of a major label, Clubbo is once more in the hands of low-budget bottom-feeders. Despite our limited means, we pledge allegiance to our twin tasks: safeguarding the Clubbo catalog and releasing new music in the old Clubbo spirit.

Clubbo has had several slogans over the past four decades: "The Wickedest Wax in the West." "Home of the Swiss Invasion." "Tunes for Every Trip." But there's one slogan we like best: "Music to Believe In."

We believe in Clubbo and its legacy of bold, if sometimes ill-advised, music. Our ultimate goal: making a believer out of you.

Andy Sullivan

Better than reality
These may be make-believe bands on a make-believe label, but that doesn't mean they don't sound better than most "real" music out there. Rockfinger's "Feel It," in particular, is the best chump-rock anthem Bad Company never wrote. Highly recommended.

Anthony Gargiulo

This is the place to get "Soda Pop Shop" a big hit with history...
Well, though most of the tracks are forgettable, this is the place to get the "Pop" (excuse the redundancy) smash, "Soda Pop Shop," a classic, rare Novelty quasi-hit from 1962, so if you're looking for that track, look no further, you've found it. Also has two other great tunes, "AZURE LADY NIGHTINGALE" and "CYBER MAGNOLIA," both standout tracks, making three hit songs for the low price of only ten bucks. You'll have to excuse the cheappo Clubbo cardboard envelope it comes in, but having the "Soda Pop Shop" at such a reasonable price, you gotta give 'em a break and thank the folks at CDBaby for putting this out. For collectors of Novelty songs, this is an absolute MUST HAVE. I'm glad I have mine! And I thank CDBaby/Clubbo Records for it. No collection would be complete without this one! Make sure you check out the Clubbo web site for the whole story on this and the other tunes on this "Sampler." - Highly recommended by Tony

check out the website!
As other reviewers have pointed out the packaging is a little lacking, but the website has the liner notes you could ever need. It's great catchy music and brilliant spoof of multiple pop/rock genres. Being a classic rock fan, I love "Feel it" and "SOB". Very well done. Get volume two and your still paying less than one CD at your local store.

Brilliant
A friend directed me to the Clubbo website, not telling me that it was a brilliant hoax, and I actually believed it for a minute, it was so well done! I had a great time reading the label's history, and the band bios. I thought that the songs wouldn't live up to the fabricated hype, but they do! The songs are tributes to pop eras gone by, lovingly crafted by people with talent and taste (and a sense of humor), as if it wasn't enough for them to love the history of rock music, they had to get inside it and feel what it would be like to create it. Especially fond of: Clipper Cowbridge, Tiger Love, and Action Plus.
