‘A Journey to Happiness Island’, was recorded in a weekend. It was the product of years of conniving on the part of Malcolm Felder, who had envisioned something that was not so much a parody of children’s music, as in fact an exploration of the style of production that goes into the creation of a children’s album. It follows Mr. Tadpole as he leads Billy, Mr. Jeebee, the Sunflower Cabaret, and Mr. Chipmunkee to Happiness Island. The story is narrated by Dr. Esophagus, a dermatologist. We go everywhere we can think of, from in to out, from up to down, from playful banging to electronic ooze, all in one scatalogical adventure into a yesteryear that never was. All else can be said concerning the story is that things get worse only to get better. Happiness Island isn’t Sappiness Island, anymore.
