Who said “They ain’t making Jews like Jesus anymore”? It was, of course, country music’s resident iconoclast Kinky Friedman. These days, you’ll find more Kinky Friedman books in bookstores than Kinky Friedman records in record stores. We’re trying to change that by issuing his historic second and third LPs together on one CD.
The second LP included the now-classic They Ain’t Making Jews Like Jesus Anymore, as well as Kinky Friedman’s version of Billy Swan’s hit song Lover Please (Rock-a-Billy Swan had served an apprenticeship with Kinky Friedman). By the time of the third LP, Kinky Friedman was on Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue and had moved to Dylan’s record label. Bob Dylan gave him a song he had yet to record, Catfish (dedicated to the great baseball pitcher Catfish Hunter), Eric Clapton was on hand to play guitar, and Ringo Starr did a narration on one song. It was an all-star event, and, like the second LP, has never been reissued in Europe.
