Unknown - Put on Your Fezz

I found a metal-core acetate disc containing two Shriner-related songs at a thrift store back in the 80s. No information apart from the songs' titles is written on the labels, but the b-side's title, "Zamora," suggests that the disc originated with the Zamora Shrine Temple in Irondale, a small town in the Birmingham, Alabama metro area. For me, the record's jaunty a-side, "Put on Your Fezz (sic)" always conjured up images of inebriated Shriners cavorting clumsily with their sexy female entertainer.
