Archie Campbell, “Rindercella” (1965)

I was at Fry’s in North Austin when I walked by a guy who looked so very familiar – thin, moustachioed, dressed in a hunting cap and vest, and talking on a cell phone. The bit of conversation I overheard: “Well, just tell him that next time he shows up I’m gonna grab a baseball bat and beat the h’yell out of him.” After wracking my brains and staking out from a safe distance I realized I didn’t know him at all but that he was just a dead ringer for Hee Haw‘s decidedly less threatening Archie Campbell. So I went home and dug up this single Campbell put out pre-Hee Haw – a 1965 version of Jack Ross’s 1962 minor cabaret hit “Cinderella,” featuring a mess of jumbled consonants and another mess of guffaws for each one.
