You have this big zit on your
nose. You haven't been able to sup-
press its early growth and, now, if
you were to pick at it, it would scar
you for life. So you nurture it, al-
lowing it to bloom into a white-
capped Everest, following it through
the green, drying stage until it starts
to shrink and, finally the scab falls
.off when you're taking a shower.
You're relieved that the protuberance
is gone, but you've also come to feel
a certain respect for the spot you've
so carefully nurtured from birth to
death. These mixed emotions are at
the heart of the message of this der-
matology lesson. The 'performances'
on Golden Throats are aural zits.
These recordings, like zits, are vile

little creatures which still manage to
hold one fascinated by their monu-
mental unpleasantness.
Included here are rock classics
performed by such showbiz titans as
Leonard Nimoy, Sebastian Cabot,
Andy Griffith, Mae West, Jim
Nabors, and Eddie Albert. Most of
this stuff was recorded in the '60s,
when it seems you could commit
anything to vinyl. Nimoy broods
through a version of "Proud Mary"
that positively drips with ennui; he
also jaunts profoundly through Pete
Seeger's "If I Had A Hammer."
At least he attempts to sing; Al-
bert and Cabot merely ham their way
through spoken versions backed by
saccharine orchestras. Albert annihi-
lates "Blowin' In the Wind." Cabot
turns Bobby's venom into glee; "It
Ain't Me Babe" and "Like A Rolling
Stone" take on more psychotic,
pathological connotations under
Cabot's auspices.
But we really plummet to the
depths of depravity and mental disor-
der with William Shatner's readings
of "Lucy In The Sky" and "Mr.
Tambourine Man." If there were ever
any doubts that Lennon's song was
about acid, then Captain Kirk wipes

"Lucy." On this trip, he goes where
no man has gone before! Even
weirder is the Dylan song which has
an angelic choir backing Shatner's
crazed voice. He sounds like a char-
acter from a Dostoyevsky novel.
A cathartic performance indeed!

Chaka Khan
C.K.
Warner Brothers records
Chaka Khan. Chaka Khan. Chaka

Khan, let me rock ya' that's all I
wanna do. That's what Grandmaster
Flash rapped in the intro to Chaka's
prince-penned hit "I Feel For You."
Now, it seems, anybody who's any-
body wants to rock Chaka. Her guest
list for this all-night party is as im-
pressive as any since the We Are The
World session. Which don't mean a
thing if she ain't got that swing. But
she got it, she got it.
Of course Stevie shows up, har-
monica in teeth, when she tries her
hand at his "Signed, Sealed, Deliv-
ered (I'm Yours.)" (Not to mention
Omar Hakim.) But Chaka steals the
show with her funkified delivery. Her
voice is sweet soulful perfection.

1' V
Compare it to that of the slightly
more popular, slightly slimmer vo-
calist with two self-titled albums
under her tiny belt, (Need another
hint? How's "Just for the taste of
it"?) and it's blatant that Chaka pos-
sesses the more sublime, the more
exciting, the more human instru-
ment.
Mr. Prince contributes two typi-
cally idiosyncratically great tunes.
One of which, "Sticky Wicked," is
the forum for the much-anticipated
collaboration between Miles Davis
and the Purple One (His Royal Bad-
ness? The Minneapolis Genius?) All
the expected sparks fly about, and the
Man with the Horn (the Father of

Fusion?) even delivers an charmingly
indecipherable spoken word coda. But
what I'll remember about it is that
it's the first time I heard Chaka Khan
rap.
Other guest artists on C.K. in-
clude George Benson, Bobby McFer-
rin, Dave Grusin, Brenda Russell,
and Marcus Miller. Their perfor-
mances are superb. These are some of
the best players in the business, and
they elevate almost every cut to near-
classic status - based on their per-
formance as well as their mere pres-
ence on the same recording. The uni-
fying factor is, you guessed it,
Chaka's powerful, gentle lungs. Her
easy moves from sweaty funk to cool
jazz are reason enough to tune in.
