Anyone remember a modern rock song telling the story of Peter and the Wolf? I think I heard during the Kneal Mann overnights.

Also, while I'm at it, What's the name of the performer of "Male Dancer" (you know...strip for me, babe, strip for you...)

From Scott MacLean, 10/1/2003 11:25:53 AM:

The second one is "Male Stripper" by "Man 2 Man Meet Man Parrish".

Steve - I'm not sure if this is it or not, but there is a recording of P&TW from 1975 that featured Manfred Mann, Gary Brooker, Chris Spedding, Eno, Stephane Grappelli, Bill Bruford, Phil Collins, Alvin Lee and Cozy Powell among others, narrated by Viv Stanshall (Bonzo Dog Band). (RSO catalogue 2394 162, marketed by Polydor)

I don't see it on CD from any of the usual suspects, but there is a picture of the album cover and a short write-up on it at: http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Palladium/9932/cpowe_s.htm

yeah, I don't know, audio, this had definite new-music feel that the personnel described by that website couldn't pull off. Had much more of a "Teddy Bear's Picnic" feel (remember that?). All I remember lyically is "...and along came the wolf..."

Steve -
Ah, Drastic Measures !..... yeah, I tend to agree on your observation.... I vaguely remember another version since you mentioned the TBP, but so far, bupkus..... if I come up with anything, I'll post it here.

Nash the Slash, in his album, Children of the Night, had a real cool song called "Wolf." It was an instrumental, but Nash describes it as his version of Peter and the Wolf--only in his version, the wolf wins(!!!).

I understand Nash was close to Drastic Measures.

The song you are thinking of is "A Tribute To Peter And The Wolf" by JFK. It's from the 1989 Modern Rock talent search and is on the compilation of the same name.

From steve, 10/6/2003 7:09:36 AM:

yeah that could be it Kev, thanks
