Click - Fat Lady In The Wicker Chair - Dancing Babies




I found out about Click when i stumbled across his self titled album in the bargin bin at a record store years ago. I bought it not knowing anything about it but the album looked a bit "psychedelic" and it was from 1969. A good year. I must have played that record one thousand times. Almost everyone i played it for found charm in that records grooves. A few of the songs have made mix after mix and i'd say it still holds a place in my musical heart. A burned copy is always in the car for long drives. Its an odd mix of folk & psych in a singer songwriter tradition but with a weird bend to it. And this 45 is no different really. Odd & great. I was really "psyched" (pun intended) when i found this 45 out at the local flea market because i did not know it existed. I only thought the full length "Click" album was the only thing Mr. Click Horning had released. You can visit his website and order this great rare and way out of print album directly from him HERE, if you so desire. I would recomend it. Looks like he still plays every Sunday afternoon in NH.

is this the same Click that recorded that song about Gollum? "My Precious"? I love that song, in spite of its novelty.
