Ken Turner Of The Blackwood Brothers

The Last Mile Of The Day

DRP 7211 1972

Christian LP curiously titled "Here Comes The Volkswagen". You have to listen to the LP to get the title. Turner, on this solo effort, mixes straight gospel numbers with comedic impressions of other singers, Mr. Magoo, fake instruments and car noises.

The inscription on the back is from Turner: To my favorite girl and sweetheart. Love you lots. How this record found its way into a Northern Kentucky Goodwill is a mystery to me.

The sample above is an "instrumental" with Ken impersonating the horn section.
