Music From A Surplus Store

Music From A Surplus Store is a 1959 pop album by Jack Fascinato which accents swingin’ lounge music with various tools and hardware. The track above is “Rub A Dub,” which features an automatic washer, a washboard and what’s billed in the liner notes as “the working end of a ‘plumber’s helper.'”

Other tracks on the album use oil cans, furniture casters and bedsprings. Fascinato was already a big name at Capitol Records when this was recorded because he wrote the arrangements for a stack of successful LPs by Tennessee Ernie Ford. Another album he released on the label in 1959, The Palm Springs Suite, is likewise a lounge music classic. In his later career he wrote jingles for television and radio advertisements.
