These two odd songs come from the Belgian compilation "Een Zwanspartij Met", released by Polydor Special in, I'm guessing, the early 70's. I fell in love with the cover of this record when a roommate brought it home from his travels abroad. I eventually aquired it as trade in exchange for capturing swarms of flies in the alley with a net to feed to his praying mantis.
The Charel Janssens tracks starkly stand out on this mostly bland compilation. It's a wet fart polka, embelished with dissonant accents for comic effect and Charel's whiny milquetoast voice hemming and hawing in some overwrought vaudeville routine.
I can't find a goddamn thing about Charel Janssens except for one vague reference on a poorly translated webpage. I like to imagine that that's Charel Janssens on the cover, with the pretty ladies fawning all over him. Click on image for complete cover.

If anyone has any information on Mr. Janssens or if you know what the hell he is yammering about, please respond.
