Jack Mudurian - Downloading The Repertoire (CD)
Release Date: 01/04/96
Holy Smokes! 129 Songs In Less Than 50 Minutes
Jack Mudurian loves to sing. It's as simple as that. Ask him to sing, and sing he will. Claiming a repertoire of almost as many songs as Sinatra, Duplex Planet's own David Greenberger challenged him to sing for 45 minutes continuously. Armed with a hand-held tape recorder loaded with a C-90 cassette, they stepped out on to the back porch of the Duplex Nursing Home in Boston, which was where Jack lived. It was a clear June afternoon, the weather was perfect. Birds can be heard singing in the trees (and another resident, Francis McElroy can also be heard vocalizing in the distance from time to time). This CD is the unedited recording of Jack's 129-song medley. This is another recording which has been passed along, hand-to-hand, since its early '80s recording. It has proved to be so captivating, that it's been the recipient of that highest form on adulation: sampling. Excerpts of Jack's singing can be heard in Kramer's The Bosom Friend, the Egomaniacs' Father's Day, Dogbowl's Palm Wine on Palm Sunday as well as on the Howard Stern Show!
