One of the staggeringly large number of highlights on Harry Smith's 6 album Anthology of American Folk Music is Chubby Parker's King Kong Kitchie Kitchie Ki-Me-O. A definitive version of Froggie Went A-Courtin', wrly described by Smith thusly:
Zoologic Miscegeny Achieved In Mouse Frog Nuptuals, Relatives Approve.... In the register of the London Company of Stationers for November 2, 1580, there is an entry titled 'a moste strange weddinge of the frogge and the mouse'- probably this same composition.
The collected and compiled Chubby herein is the shit. Old, weird American shit.
