Volume II (LM-901) 1978?
Markie’s not quite up to his usual standards on this one. The spoken side (the Carol Fox-written ‘I Am Only Me’ about a little ﬂuffy cloud) is actually semi-normal and lacks the “psycho” aspects of his other rants. No matter though — the music on side one is still most deﬁnitely up to par. Behold the many facets of Markie: the Burt Bacharach Markie (‘I’m Going On For Jesus’), the samba Markie (‘Thank You Jesus’), the Randy Newman Markie (‘Use Me’). Markie’s creepy sinister giggle makes its way into a couple songs. Nice Chipmunk-ish self-harmony singing God’s “pwaises” on ‘I’m Rejoicing In The Lord’. Slick colorized drawing of Mark’s boyhood face on the back (the same one that appears in negative image on the front of Volume 1). (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
