Medic Emetics - Menopause

I have in the past purchase several record collections for next to nothing. Even thou I get a lot of junk getting large amounts of records there is always something worth the trouble. This disk is one of them. The record sat for the longest time hidden in a Bob Seger jacket. I don't know if it ever had a cover I am just glad I found it before I disposed of the BS. Not knowing what emetic was I did a search and this is what I found.

Emetic (met4ik) , substance that produces vomiting. Direct, or gastric, emetics, which act directly on the stomach, include syrup of ipecac, sulfate of zinc or copper, alum, ammonium carbonate, mustard in water,bob seger music, or copious quantities of warm saltwater. Indirect, or systemic, emetics, such as apomorphine, induce vomiting by acting indirectly through the blood on the brain center that controls vomiting. Emetics are not used to treat poisoning by strong acids or alkalis, petroleum distillates such as kerosene, or substances causing convulsions.

The medic emetics record sounds like it was a studio version of a corporate variety show. Most of the songs on this record sound a lot like bob peck. Although I don't think bob had anything to do with it. Every song has a fun little story about medicine. There is even a song about prostate enlargement.
