cream puffs and bourbon

Not a track from a compilation tape this time, but a recent CD from my dear brother Ox. The perfect audio thank-you for any particularly outstanding party hosts from the recent festive season.

Ween - Your Party 

The thing I love about this track is how pitch-perfect everything about it is. The language is spot-on throughout - "beverages", "candy", "spices", "platters" and of course "the wife", all delivered in a consciously refined accent. But to really nail the sweet party atmosphere, the track features guest Sax by archetypal radio-friendly smooth jazzer, David Sanborn. Love it.
