The proper title of this song (and album) is "The Mississippi Squirrel Revival". --Closeapple 07:06, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

The title of the album seems to be just Mississippi Squirrel Revival, however. --Closeapple 07:37, 19 November 2005 (UTC)


The song "The Mississippi Squirrel Revival" appears to have been released in 1984 on 2 similar albums: He Thinks He's Ray Stevens (LP and cassette) and also Mississippi Squirrel Revival (cassette only), which has 8 of the 10 songs from He Thinks He's Ray Stevens. The album Mississippi Squirrel Revival was then rereleased in 1992 (CD only). See the Ray Stevens album discography. Confused yet? It was also released on 2 or 3 of his multitude of "greatest hits" albums. --Closeapple 07:06, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

Inspiration for the song[edit]

"The Mississippi Squirrel Revival" was released in 1984, but the rather similar "Three German Police Dogs And An Ol' Yellow Cat at the Ebenezer Freewill Baptist Church All Day Singing And Dinner On the Ground Homecoming" was released by Wendy Bagwell in 1983. Could one have inspired the other, or is it just coincidence? Captain Packrat (talk) 04:04, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
