My favorite album of all time. Again, due to forum poll limitations, the album is being split into its original four sides. At least, that way, it's not as difficult to pick a favorite listen. You get four choices!

If you come to view, why not vote, too? 8)

I squished all the different versions into one file years ago. It's not that hard.

This was the hardest one to choose from.
I almost picked King Kong (the Gardner Varieties)
But ultimately went with
King Kong (live on a flat bed diesel in the middle of a race track at a Miami Pop Festival . . . the Underwood ramifications)

Wow!!! Are you me? Am I you? We picked the same track for each of the 4 sides. The statistical density of it all is blowin' my mind, man!

Studio version of King Kong I like the best
Miami a close second.

I do love the :51 studio track, but it isn't enough.

I've got a big bunch of dick
I've got a dick that much
I've got a big bunch of dick

I've got a big bunch of dick
I've got a dick that much
Ah, I've got a big bunch of dick
I've got a dick that much
Look that he/she is eating it
And while he/she is gobbling it up
Ask me what he/she is doing
He/she is sucking it

I've got a big bunch of dick
I've got a dick that much
I've got a big bunch of dick
I've got a dick
You must use a chicken
You must use . . . if you want to measure it
You must use a chicken
If you want to touch it

I've got a big bunch of dick
I've got a dick that much
I've got a big bunch of dick
I've got a dick to be touched
Mmmmm
Come on, baby
Come on, baby, suck my fire!
Oh yeah . . .

While he/she is gobbling it up
Ask me what he/she is doing
It's obvious! He/she is sucking it

I've got a big bunch of dick
I've got a dick that much
Look that he/she is eating it
Look that he/she is eating it and is sucking it
Darling
Darling
Darling
Look at your sister
Do something like that, thanks

You must use a chicken
You need it to measure
So you can suck it
You both suck in stereo
Jesus!

I've got a big bunch of dick
I've got a dick that much
I've got a big bunch of dick
I've got a dick
I've got a big bunch of dick
