LEE, KATIE - SONGS OF COUCH AND CONSULTATION / LIFE IS JUST A BED OF NEUROSES (CD)


"A Psycho-Satirical Masterpiece! First Time On CD! Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away...the cults of psychoanalysis and psycho-babble were just a gleam in some twitching misfits eye. Here, those lucrative pseudo-sciences are lampooned to delirious effect. The teaming of folk-cabaret chanteuse Katie Lee with lyricist Bud Freeman and composer Leon Pober resulted in the 1957 swingin' satirical masterpiece "Songs Of Couch And Consultation". Numbers like "Repressed Hostility Blues" and "The Will To Fail" have, if anything, gained more traction in today's over-analyzed, over-medicated world. Is it Tom Lehrer with curves? The product of sick minds? The LP received rave notices and even spawned a sequel, 1960's "Life Is Just A Bed Of Neuroses". Both are presented here for the very first time on CD, in glorious remastered sound with exclusive liner notes, rare photos, ephemera and extra tracks."
