Vinyl Dynamite #66: Ali and His Gang Vs. Mr. Tooth Decay


Fight the Power!.... of tooth decay.  I've been enamoured by this strange LP for a long, long time.  I just find it weird that Sinatra, Ali, Ritchie Havens and Howard Cosell would team up in 1976 to make a record on tooth decay... and dedicate it to Lily Tomlin.  WTF?  Had they all been arrested and doing this out of community service?  I'm sure there's an explanation out there.

Anyway, here's the record in its entirety.  I've divided it into tracks; however, the record has no defined tracks.  Fair Warning: This album can be barely tolerable - the poor acting, the ridiculous story, etc.  I promise, the novelty will wear off before you've reached the third track.

  1. I only listened to a couple of the cuts. Ali takes on someone uglier than Joe Frazier, and Howard Cosell is the narrator. And does anyone remember the cartoon he had about a year after this album came out? There is a full episode on YouTube where he goes down to Florida and takes on a robotic alligator.
