First album by the a cappella group The Bobs.

The concept is bizarre — four a cappella vocalists who call themselves "bob" and cover rock & roll numbers — yet it somehow works for people, even people in high places; in addition to developing a loyal following, the Bobs received a Grammy nomination for their arrangement of the Beatles' "Helter Skelter." The band was founded in 1981, when Gunner Bob Madsen and Matthew Bob Stull lost their jobs with a singing telegram company (one can only wonder why). Together with Richard Bob, they began to perform a cappela in the San Francisco Bay Area, adding Janie Bob Scott to their lineup in 1982. The following year saw the release of their eponymous debut album with the liner notes containing the classic "Warning: All the sounds on this recording were produced by the mouth or other parts of the body." Covers include the abovementioned Beatles' cut as well as the Talking Heads' "Psycho Killer" and a number of probingly intelligent and blissfully witty original numbers. 1987's "My, I'm Large" continued in the same vein, mixing covers and madcap origninals, while Songs for Tomorrow Morning, released the following year, featured a five-song sequence about laundry written for their artistic partners, the dance troupe ISO.

To get a sense of just how shocking the Bobs' first album was, one has to consider when it was released. In 1983 the sound on the radio was slick new wave music with a high technical sheen and not a whole lot of soul. Vocal music was stuff one heard out the doors of churches, as relevant to everyday life as madrigals and barbershop quartets. And then out of San Francisco came four powerful voices making wild music, a mix of wacky stuff and stories from everyday life about a roommate who never takes out the trash, about hearing the neighbors through the wall, about whatever the heck "Cowboy Lips" was about, and one had to listen. The opening cut, "Art for Art's Sake," grabbed listeners and wouldn't let go, and it grabbed so many radio programmers that it actually got some airplay despite being an a capella piece. Likewise was their frantic version of "Helter Skelter," which managed the feat of winning a Grammy for an unknown act on a minor label. The Bobs had arrived in style. Fast-forward and the album held up remarkably well. The songwriting team of Richard Greene and Gunnar Madsen was in strong form right from the beginning, and tunes like "Trash" and "Art for Art's Sake" remained fresh and exhilarating. Those who prefer the Bobs' original material to their cover pieces may just decide that this is their best album, and by any standard it ranks high in their catalog. (AMG)
