Raymond Scott - CD - Rating: 9/10

In the past, most people’s introduction to Raymond Scott came when some hipster nerd told them that the music from Looney Tunes was okay, but you should really listen to this guy who Carl Stalling totally ripped off! Nowadays most of us have heard these songs in various modern cartoons from Ren and Stimpy to the present. I remember bringing this CD into work at Tandem Press and it immediately got the thumbs down from the staff because they had all been inundated Scott and other music from the 78 era when Art Spiegelman had been artist in residence the month before. Indy comic guys apparently love this stuff. Well, it’s fun, happy, creative music, so I guess that makes sense (I don’t know how that really ties in with the whole mouse holocaust thing, but just go with it for now).
