Offered for sale is a sealed original copy of Rusty Warren’s comedy album, Knockers Up!, issued in 1960 on the Jubilee label.
About this copy: The copy of Knockers Up! is an original mono pressing, sealed in a loose bag. This is a first issue of the LP, with the cover listing the title “I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate” rather than the later title, “Red River Sally.” All copies were mono; there were no stereo pressings. The record is presumably new and unplayed. There is an original price sticker on the wrap.
Background: It’s hard to imagine today, but in the late 1950s and early 1960s, adults frequently sat around the living room, drinking cocktails and listening to comedy albums. Rusty Warren gained popularity at this time with her “adult humor”, which was often somewhat (for the time) sexually risque. While her material is somewhat dated today, and no longer particularly provocative, her albums are an interesting artifact of the era. Knockers Up!, her second album for Jubilee, became a sensation and was Rusty Warren’s best-selling LP.
