The Joker/ Shame And Scandal In The Family - Shawn Elliott

Happy April Fool's Day! Here's a swingin' 1965 release from "Mr. Woe is Me" Shawn Elliott. And no, this Joker has absolutely nothing to do with the Steve Miller Band!

Another superb Roulette single from Shawn Elliott, "Shame and Scandal in the Family". It's a catchy little ska number about family relationships running amuck. There are many perfectly decent versions of the song (Madness, Trini Lopez, Peter Tosh), but I dig this one the most.
