Bally! Sounds of the Old-Time Sideshow / Various
Authentic ballies from 8-track tapes discarded in a 'junk shop' as the age of the freak-show ended, from the memories of the last living old-time showmen, from carnies who re-lived the glorious language of the sideshow for us one last time! Hear the showman lure you into the 10-in-One Sideshow, the Museum of Freak Animals, the Girl-to-Gorilla Show, the Glass House and MANY more. "Alive! Alive! Alive! Terrors of the Amazon! Deadly piranhas, able to strip the flesh from a cow in seconds and leave just the bones! The two-headed pig, a two-faced calf! Freaks of nature!' 'Look! Look through the doorway! They're looking at her right now! Grace McDaniel, the Mule-Faced Girl! Emmett, the Elephant-Skin Man! Percilla, the Monkey Girl! A whole gallery of freaks! $10,000 reward if not absolutely alive!' Hear the rides, the games, the pitch for 'a little booklet printed in France', and much more! 27 tracks take you on a continuous walk through the carnival lot of 50 years ago!
