Jonathan Winters & the Martians: Nee Nee Na Na Na Na Nu Nu b/w Take Me to Your Leader
(Coral 9-61988; 1958)
In memory of the late, great absurdist Jonathan Winters, I present this two-sided slice of fun with the improvisational master in rock and roll mode for a one-off single for Coral Records. The A-side was also recorded by Dickie Doo & the Don'ts, and British ska band Bad Manners, but why would you listen to any other version? Any bets on whether the tune influenced Mork from Ork's signature greeting?
