This is Sally Sashay's
only known showtape. The reel is themed around disco music, and Sally Sashay is referred to in these as the "disco skunk". There's the expected wise-cracks about Sally's smell (mainly out of Chuck E) however her vocals are praised in nearly all of her skits. She's also one of the few guest stars who doesn't hesitate to snap back at Chuck E and put him in his place.
Like many of the earliest showtapes, this tape has a few special segments that are themed to the special guest (in this case Sally) and the rest are recycled shows from earlier tapes.
- As stated above, many of the shows on this tape have been recycled from earlier tapes and are not exclusive to this reel. The segments which actually contain Sally are Segment 1, Segment 3, Segment 5, Segment 7, and Segment 9.
- Officially we don't know the proper date of this reel. A fan in the community happened to obtain it by chance - it was inside the box meant for another showtape. Based on the songs included on the tape and by the arrangement of the guest spots, our educated guess is that the reel was released sometime in either 1979 or 1980.
-3 out of 5 Tokens-
First of all, I should point out that I appreciate this tape based on how scarce it is. It has some aura of intrigue about it especially since the information we have on Sally Sashay is next to nothing. The fan-community is fortunate to even have this tape.
But that being said, this showtape is pretty annoying. Sally's vocals are decent when she's not trying to do anything fancy with her singing. Unfortuantely many of these disco songs go the other direction. There's quite a few notes that are cringe worthy - either from being very high or from being too growly. The disco theme is confusing too, I mean this was the era of disco, but it's one of those genres of music that faced quite a backlash - which might explain why Sally was retired early on.
