Dennis Olivieri - Come To The Party (us 1968)

Dennis Olivieri - Come To The Party (us 1968 VMC Lp) (VMC 130)

About Dennis Olivieri:
Television actor Dennis Olivieri released his album with the help of Tandyn Almer, who wrote (or co-wrote) the Association�s big hit �Along Comes Mary�, in addition to Almer who plays keyboards, musicians also appearing here are saxophonist Tom Scott, drummer Eddie Greene, guitarist Jack Elliott, and bassist Ronnie Brown. You�ve got to hand it to these ultra-tiny record labels (in this case VMC), they seem to have a peculiar knack for finding people that redefined the term �artist�. Dennis Olivieri was one such person. This disc is filled with strange studio effects and even stranger thematic preoccupations.

Freeform folky psych rock with organ, rocksichord, sax, guitar, percussion. Weird, uncommercial LP produced by songwriter Tandyn Almer, this has been used for samples. Olivieri was primarily a TV actor, and this LP release parallels Rex Holman's in some ways.

You�ve got to hand it to these ultra-tiny record labels, they seem to have a peculiar knack for finding people that redefined the term �artist�. Dennis Olivieri was one such person. This is a self-conscious hippie vanity disc that�s filled with strange studio effects and even stranger thematic preoccupations. Much of this is the story of a grown man railing against his overbearing mother. Things come to a head on �Mama�s Funeral Song�, wherein our protagonist rants �Oh mama, mama, sometimes I wish that you would die / BECAUSE YOU HANG ME UP, MAMA!�
Why would he say such a thing? As a sort of explanation, he informs us in Sinatraesque tones, �I got this fuzzy soft thing in my head!� This album is a paradise of neuroses that would bludgeon Freud if he weren�t already dead. I can�t tell if he�s serious, or if it�s all just a campy put-on, but in the end I guess it doesn�t matter. Either way, Olivieri is on his own wavelength. �I bought me a brand new toy the other day / It�s a two-way radio that only goes one way�. That sums things up better than I ever could.
