Okay, so this episode is a little complicated. A couple months back, I spoke with Mark Rozzo, a Brooklyn musician, about Burger Records' reissue of the soundtrack to the 1977 trucker movie, Stinker Lets Loose!. Rozzo's uncle, C.J. McKnight, had evidently written and performed the music, and and Rozzo had happened to find all of his uncle's old stuff right around the time he met comedian Mike Sacks, who was in the process of re-releasing a 40th anniversary paperback edition of the movie novelization by James Taylor Johnston.
We connected, and we had this great interview, and then I received some information, and, well — I'll just let you listen to all of this, and then I'll explain after.
Tracklist (all cuts from Stinker Lets Loose!):
C.J. McKnight, "Stinker Lets Loose!"
