Lord BooBoo‘s lone single release on King Records would end up being the calypso singer’s entire recorded output! Michel Ruppli’s 2-volume King discography reports that Lord BooBoo laid down these two tracks – “De Knife, De Fork, De Spoon” b/w “No Man and Woman Get Along” – in New York City (under the supervision of Henry Glover, almost certainly) on April Fool’s Day, 1957.
“De Knife, De Fork, De Spoon”
Lord BooBoo (1957)
Note that this single was issued on 10-inch (78) as well as 7-inch (45) vinyl.
Zero to 180’s Midwest correspondent, Mike ‘Rep’ Hummel, notes that Earl Robbins, the song’s creator and undoubtedly Lord BooBoo himself, recorded a couple of split singles that same year for Cincinnati label, Gateway, where (as you might recall) my brother’s father-in-law served as vocalist under the pseudonym, Jack Daniels.
