The Abominable Snow-man- The Copy Cats- Prince Records

abominable snowman

In case you ain't heard, Baltimore and DC just got walloped by one helluva snowstorm. I've spent most of the weekend shoveling out but that don't matter too much cuz Baltimore city hasn't come near my neighborhood with a snowplow! Well that sucks for a lot of reasons, but it gives me a good opportunity to smoke a lot of cigarettes, drink a case or two of budweiser and most importantly share this record with you. In the words of my good friend Bazooka Joe Diddley, "I take novelty records very seriously," and creepy novelty records about monsters the more seriously still. Well in that spirit, this record that I have for you today is a real humdinger.

The Abominable Snow-Man by The Copycats on the Prince label is a record that is in a league of its own. A halloween record about a snow monster. Well it don't get better than that. At least not in the middle of a blizzard. Dig it here baby!


  1. Looking forward to the snow over here in Chicago. We're supposed to get a heap.
    I better keep a lookout for this guy...

  2. Thanks for sharing! I loved this 45. Any chance you might record the B side? Chief Sittin' Bull is one of my favorites too!!!
