Colonel Sanders - Spanish Flea

This highly obscure album is ostensibly credited to Colonel Sanders, but I'm not sure just how involved he was with the concept.

Then again, I hear a prominent mandolin, an instrument the Colonel was proficient at (he also released an album with his all-mandolin band), so maybe it really is him and not just a band of studio session hacks earning some quick wine money till their next Herb Alpert gig. I dunno.

This record was originally given away at Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants in the 1960s.

  1. this is awesome. i had no clue such a thing existed. reminds me of booker t and the mg's but with trumpets.

  2. Hey, Creep, happy new year!

    I've been looking for a copy of this entire album for many moons, now. I was ecstatic when I found a link on your blog.

    Can you repost this link? I would greatly appreciate having a copy of this timeless musical classic.
