The Holker Family – Feelin’ Good
I instantly fell in love with The Holker Family – endlessly coming at me in their gym shorts and tube socks. It only got better when I opened the gate-fold to find The Holker’s engaged in all manner of recreational activities. (Is this a private home gym? Why is there wainscoting in the basketball court?) And here they are, just relaxing in the den on an enormous sectional. And here they are – what? Performing in black face?
Thank heaven, there’s only one song about Jesus, and it’s a Ray Stevens cover. A ridiculous vanity family album, though the patriarch is conspicuously absent from the credits. I like to imagine he hired a guy to write and produce and push his agenda: The title track implores that “exercising is the only way.”
And of course “Hawaii’s Great But We Love Minnesota” is a spine-tingler.
