The Toe Band: Copper Clogs


























Have you ever heard of bands by the names of Waiting for
Godot 007 or Big Sissy? The Toe Band released an album
under each of these names as well as singles under a few other
names, including Hardwood Sneakers, until it settled into
The Toe Band name for three albums.


Critics have often said that The Big Toe Band would have
been a better name, but "Big Toe" proved the signature single
and "Cut It to the Quick" a disco-punk chart topper. The
untitled album pictured here became known as Copper Toes
to The Toe Band aficionados.


Perhaps strangest of all, this album features a mandolin
version of "America the Beautiful," a wine-glass whisper version
of "I'm Your Dog, Hide the Clippers," "Stub It" ("Drum with Clogs"),
and a boat-motor version of "Round the Kettle."


This album covers seventeen songs in all, four of which are
harmonica only. Oh, and a bit of trivia: The band member
names: Randy, Randy, Randy, Randy, Randy, Randy, and
Randy.
