Ali and His Gang vs. Mr. Tooth Decay

Muhammad Ali and friends take on the evils of sugary snacks.

I'd heard about this record years ago, and it sounded pretty good. I finally picked up a copy the other day, and -- sweet jesus -- this thing is better than anything I could have hoped for. It could be the single best record I own.

Start with Muhammad Ali spending 40 minutes discussing tooth decay. Add appearances by celebrity guest stars like Frank Sinatra and Richie Havens, a bunch of kids, and some truly wooden dialog straight out of a dental textbook. Throw in a song that doesn't make any sense. And if that isn't enough for you, top it off with narration by Howard Cosell.

It was more than enough for me. A sugar high is nothing compared to what I felt listening to this treasure. One track isn't enough. You want to listen to the whole thing straight through, like I did, and you want to do it twice to catch all the details. Then you want to play it in your car. Your walkman. Your bathroom -- while brushing and flossing your teeth, of course. One thing is for sure, I'll never look at ice cream the same way again.

Oh, and one more thing -- check out this amazing artwork from the back cover featuring trippy cartoon versions of Ali and the gang relaxing in Brother St. John's organic garden. Far out!

Ice Cream (Real Audio) Shopkeeper Frank Sinatra tries to sell evil Ice Cream to the kids.

OH... MY God! I actually HAD this record when I was a 5 or 6 year old kid and used to... lip sync it, I was so into it. What the hell was I even doing back then?! Those clips just sent me back through a time warp of mondo weird proportions. Needless to say I have just finished a bowl of ice cream and Mr. Tooth Decay and Sugar Cuber can kiss my tooth-flossing ass. (04-20-2004)

The theme song is truely amazing! Makes me think of that freaking 7'' Club International flexi of Long Dong Silver ("Martin Luther King had a dream, Mohammed Ali had a furious fist and I have an 18'' chocolate flavored expression of joy....")

or something...

keep up the good work, Frank! (03-19-2004)

Um, the first thing I noticed is the "Volume I" in the upper right corner... Holy Frijoles. Could there possibly be a Volume II? or MORE?? For the sake of humanity, let us hope so. (02-24-2004)
