Here Pussy Pussy


A two-for-one today, thanks to another contribution from the always reliable Ross Hamilton, who writes: "I have heard about this album down the years but never found a copy of my own until now.
I don't know too much about it I am afraid, but it comes under the category of adult albums like (those by) Kay Martin and her Bodyguards, full of double entendres and sexually suggestive lyrics."
I too have come across this before, its always cropping up on those 'bad album art' sites, but had never heard any of its contents until Ross passed these two cuts on to me.
There are just 10 tracks on the Beacon Records album My Pussy Belongs to Daddy, subtitled For Adults Only - Spicy Songs Sung By Outstanding Artists. Four artists are credited, none of them outstanding. The title song, credited to Faye Richmonde, is fairly mediocre and like so may of these simpering, sniggering, so-called 'adult' albums, aimed at the stag party market, but the other track I'm sharing with you today - He Forgot His Rubbers, performed by Angelina - is great; it reminds me of the wonderful Davy's Dinghy by Ruth Wallis, a Dr Demento standard and one of my favourite comedy records of all time. Co-incidentally Davy's Dinghy was recorded in 1956, just one year before My Pussy was released.  
It seemed that Beacon began by specialising in these kinds of releases. Their first album, Hot Pepper, featured the same line up as My Pussy Belongs to Daddy (augmented by Nancy Steele) and included such 'classics' as I'm a Virgin, But I'm On The Verge, It Was Hard When I Kissed Her Goodbye and, not being the kind of outfit to let anything go to waste, the album also includes an earlier outing for My Pussy....cheapskates!  
Still, enjoy these classic slices of 50s cheesecake:

  1. Meow, looks like one happy feline, but maybe i'm *projecting* here! A duet with Mr. Ralph Lowe ("I'm The Cat") would have been nice. Either way, that album cover is putting me into heat!

  2. Sorry about that Richard - you're right, of course. Both links are to He Forgot His Rubbers. I've tried to change the post but I'm having real problems; blogger and IE 9 don't seem to like each other.

    Until I get it sorted here is the direct link to the download for My Pussy belongs To Daddy:

  4. Faye Richmonde wasn't an artist in the 50's/60's. In fact the albums were only released in 2011 for the first time (with the exception of "Tony's Got Hot Nuts", which was featured on a film in 2004). Faye's albums (if that is even her name, which I doubt) was not released on Beacon Records, but Master Classics Records, a subsidiary of Cleopatra Records.

    1. Hate to disagree with you, but Faye Richmonde recorded a number of albums for Joe Davis (the owner of Beacon, Celebrity and Davis Records) in the 50s, including A Little Spice (issued twice, once in 1957 as JD-101 and reissued later with a different cover), Hot Pepper (on Celebrity), Girlesque and For Men Only (1957 - reviewed briefly in Jet magazine, April 3 1958). Master Classics is a company that specialises in reissues.

      Tony's Got Hot Nuts was indeed featured in the John Waters movie A Dirty Shame in 2004, but the majority of the soundtrack is made up of music from the 50s and 60s.

      According to Jet Magazine (April 9, 1959) Faye Richmonde died in 1959, in hospital in Philadelphia, following complications from the birth of he third child.

  9. Howdy, I do think your blog may be having web browser compatibility problems.

    When I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it's got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a
    quick heads up! Other than that, fantastic blog!

  12. I found this album on mp3 a number of years ago and loved it, but I never really expected to ever find an actual vinyl copy of it--but I did, at Jerry's Records in Pittsburgh, PA (http://www.jerrysrecords.com/)! I stumbled across it in the comedy section when I was looking for some Redd Foxx and Richard Pryor albums. It's in pretty bad condition, but somehow the awful crackling and popping actually *adds* to its trashy mystique. Oh, and there's a stain on the label that...uhhh, I avoid touching at all costs.
