Torok made a big splash in 1953 with a tune called Caribbean, which shot to the top of the country charts. He continued making records, although with much less commercial success, for many years to come and was even the subject of a 4-cd Bear Family box set which reissued his recordings from the 1950's and 1960's.
Madam President, which was not included on the Bear Family box set, tells the tale of a beer-guzzling country music fan who goes to sleep and dreams of Dolly Parton in the Oval Office. In Torok's dream, Parton has painted the White House lavender and pink and has hired a bevy of lady country music superstars to help her run the nation.
This 45 was purchased last weekend and was part of the haul I made at the WFMU Record Fair, which definitely lives up to the hype and should not be missed.
