Mambo!
18.  Mambo! by Yma Sumac
The list author says:
  "Breezy latin tunes from the fifties, but Sumac barks, twangs, whistles, yodels and growls over an unfeasible number of octaves. Crowned queen of fruit cakes."

22.  Escape From Noise [lp] [VINYL] by Negativland

Toy
24.  Toy by Toy
The list author says:
