Hey Ba Ba Re Bob mystery (MP3)



Unknown - Hey Ba Ba Re Bob (3:10)

A bit earlier this week, a friend sent me this MP3 in hopes of solving the mystery of who, exactly, made this record. The disc features an unidentified artist or band offering a decidedly smutty version of Lionel Hampton's colossal 1946 hit Hey! Ba-Ba-Re-Bob.

The question is: who the heck is the mystery artist? The Maddox Brothers minus Rose is one guess that's materialized. I have no idea. How about you?

Could it be Cactus Pryor? Sounds a little like him.
