And the answer is...

Psachya Septimus emails:
Responding to your post: "Shifty whoo", a.k.a. "Achas Shoalti", originally appeared on the Toronto Boys Choir album "V'Omar Bayom Hahu", which was released in the mid-'70's. Best bet to find it would probably be at Mostly Music in Borough Park (I believe they have a website as well).
Bravo on your "Purim peeve" piece - I, too, receive calls every year for "March 24" (this year's example) without being told that it's Purim. Simple solution - at the beginning of every year, mark in your date book (or Palm Pilot, or whatever) the date for Purim, as well as Lag Ba-Omer, Pesach, Succos, Shabbos Nachamu, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, and Labor Day. It will save you a lot of grief, as well as informing the offices that you're on to them.

Honorary mention to Jordan and Mindy who thought it was Toronto Pichei, but who couldn't ID the album.
