Daily Discovery - Dinosaur Cavern b/w God's Gift To Man by Terry Wayne - Novelty Rockabilly 45 on Cotco (Coast To Coast) Records #66
This is a trippy record. It says "To be constructed life size 112' high on Route 66 Arizona, 1 mile from entrance to Caverns- Open Year Round" in small print on the picture sleeve. By doing some online research I found out that the dinosaur was originally built in 1962. My best guess is that this record was being sold to either raise money, to promote the landmark that was to be created or selling them to tourists as a way to remember their trip. Take a little trip with me to "Devil's Den".

Daily Discovery - The Chicken Mash b/w The Apes by Dennis Weaver - Novelty Rocker 45 on Eva Records #103
Back to back novelty rockers, from apes to chickens. I had to share these fun tunes with the world, because very few will admit to playing them. This is dedicated to the few of you out there playing these records loud enough for your neighbor to hear it. Keep up the good work! Oh yeah, when you play these two, don't forget to TURN IT UP!
Daily Discovery - Mr. K b/w Lonely One by John Bean - Popcorn Novelty Soul dancer 45 on Reprise Records #20185
Popcorn Soul dancer with a twist. More like a splash, of "Mmmmmm, Vodka" that is. Get up and dance to this quirky Novelty dancer that features our hero, Boris Karloff impersonator smacking his lips and burping. Coming to a dance floor near you!
Daily Discovery - Mexican Cat b/w Seventh Dawn Theme by Jimmie Haskell - Novelty 45 on Capitol Records #5221
This shout out goes to all the Mexican Cats I know. Happy Cinco de Mayo! I'm out of here, Meow, Meow! In other words, Tan, Tan!
Daily Discovery - Big Foot b/w Rebecca by Googie Rene - R&B Mod rocker 45 on Class Records #239
There has just been a Bigfoot sighting in Los Angeles. There is no need for alarm, as he is sitting in my record box and I promise I will not let him escape. This is a cross collectable as R&B, R&R, Mods, Monster & Novelty collectors will be soon looking for this wicked cut. Beware, this hairy, beast of a record.
Daily Discovery - Frankenstein Stomp by Count Lorry And The Biters - Halloween Monster R&R Novelty 45 on Dragon #4406 the flip side is "Groovin' With Drag" is the instrumental version. The opening line "You don't have to be a Monster but it certainly helps" sets up this Monster R&R dancer. This record speaks for itself.
Daily Discovery - Superbug by Sammy Jackson. Country Novelty 45. Not much to say here just open your ears and listen to this crazy novelty tune.
Daily Discovery - The Woodpecker by Jim & Bill. Country Novelty, risque 45 on Quartercash Records out of Lavergne, Tennessee. I think this was released in the late 50's but I am not sure. This one speaks for itself. Trippy!
Daily Discovery - Willie The Wabbit by Gary & Johnny & Puffs. Novelty R&R 45 - This is Gary Paxton, the same guy that produced & recorded the classic "The Monster Mash". He started the label Gar-Pax. An odd little tune but it cracks me up, you can't help but smile listening to this. Enjoy!
