The wonderful thing about The Burgenius (well, one of them) is that as a child he was exposed to real culture. Then came rock and/or roll, and he went down hill fast, but much of the culture remained into adulthood. Harold Arlen is one of the great composers of American music. This is a wonderful compilation of timeless songs that have enriched the lives of people for generations; before Generation Gauche. True, it's not the Butthole Surfers, but what is? Give your ears a break and your brain something to work with. Buy this, put it on your Ipod; you can tell people you're listening to Green Day...no, don't do that! No one should be encouraged to listen to Green Day, under any circumstances. Tell them it's Flipper. That alone will impress anyone. I don't listen to Flpper myself...hey, why am I writing about Flipper? Tell them it's Bukowski. Now run along and look up Charles Bukowski, you cultural trash bins.
