Bull Moose Jackson

Bull Moose’s original recordings were released on 78rpm records in the 1940s and early 1950s.   You can still find some of these 78s for sale online.  Over the years there have been numerous vinyl and CD compilations of these old tunes… some authorized by King, his original label, and some un-authorized. Between 1983 and 1986 Bull Moose teamed up with The Flashcats to write and record brand new songs, along with new remakes of a few of his classic tunes.  These 1983-86 recordings are available through Bogus Records.  Just click on the button at the top or bottom of this page.

“Get Off The Table, Mable, The Two Dollars Is For The Beer” 45

The recording that started Bull Moose’s 1980s come-back.  This was first record Bull Moose did with The Flashcats and its success brought him national attention.  “Mable” was co-written by Bull Moose and Flashcat’s guitarist Dave Kent.  Both sides of this 45 were recorded on November 27, 1983 in Valencia, PA by Lee “Mr.Record” Hollihan. It was released in May 1984 on Bogus Records.

Bogus Records is scouring the warehouse in the hope of finding any original copies of this 45.  For the time being we have to consider this item as Sold Out. (If you come across a copy of this record, the first pressing had a yellow label with a red “Bogus” logo and black type.  Subsequent pressings had a yellow label and all black type including the logo.)

Moosemania!  LP

“Get Off The Table, Mable” received its national debut on the Dr. Demento Show and a mention in BIllboard magazine brought calls and interest from around the world.  Bull Moose and The Flashcats appeared from New York to Hollywood. And when contemporary rock stations added “Mable” to their playlists Bull Moose found an entire new generation of fans.

This LP features seven new Bull Moose/Flashcat compositions and four newly recorded versions of Bull Moose classics, including the first ever Live Bull Moose recordings of “Big Fat Mamas Are Back In Style Again” and “Big Ten Inch Record.”

Final Recordings CD

In 1985 Bull Moose appeared at New York’s Carnegie Hall and toured Europe. He was thrilled to be back in the public eye, and he loved talking to fans from the old days as well as an entire new generation of fans. In 1986 work was begun on a follow-up to Moosemania! but Bull Moose’s health took a turn for the worse, and only two songs were recorded for the new LP. Although he chose to ignore it, Bull Moose had been suffering with cancer for years, and he eventually became too weak to perform or record.  This CD features the original 45, “Get Off The Table, Mable (The Two Dollars Is For The Beer),” all of the songs from Moosemania!  plus the final two songs ever recorded by Bull Moose Jackson.
