Alice, "The Grapes of Wraith" :-) Very nice, but aren't you thinking of the novel by the Nobel prize winner John Stainbeck about the angry sex pest:-
The Gropes of Wrath.

He also wrote that very moving story about a union organiser in a sausage factory Of Mince And Men.
His great family saga about a bakery Yeast of Eden was filmed starring a broody James Bean as a doughboy in his last film before his tragic early death.
However I've always liked his rather under rated travelogue about his epic truck journey through Lancashire with an incontinent poodle, Travails with Chorley.

Micca, thanks for Plane Wreck at Los Gateaux, but remember Woddy's magnificent plaintive line "They were only divorcees.". He also deserves credit for his great love song Bound For Gloria.

Actually, Matthew,I think you are confusing your John Steinway titles. You refer,I assume,to his novel about Teutonic porcelain manufacturers, " Of Meissen Men " ? Also,you seem to have confused one of your other titles with Chef Rick Steinberg's great work,or wok,even, about Biblical bickerings between Orpah and her sister,"The Gripes Of Ruth".

Thanks bubblyrat. I could be getting confused here but didn't Steamboat also write a tribute to that one-handed celebration of American onanism 'Portnoy's Complaint' titled The Grips of Roth?

Besides John Hardly which I mentioned above, John and Alan Lowax also recorded the great African American folk singer Hudie Ledbiter in the immortal, but much misunderstood, song Goodnight Irony.

Well it's geting very fanciful, but I think it's more interesting to stick to the original poster's challenge. Add a letter or two to the original title. (and I think subsequently modified to taking away a letter or two)
Once you can take away any letters you like, and replace them with any other letters, the transformations can get out of hand. Though possibly funnier!

These are some real CD titles that have floated across my desk as I recall them:

LIFE OF BRINE - Sea Shanties and Forebitters by the Roaring Forties of Sydney, Australia

BREAKING WIND - Sea Music from the Harry Browns of Bristol (UK)

BLOW BOYS BLOW - Sea Shanties and Forebitters by A.L. Lloyd and Ewan MacColl

And it's "Forebitters" not "Forebiters"

Green grow the rustics-oh!

I saw mommy kissing the man next door

A walk in the Black Forest Gateaux

She쳌fll be coming round the fountain

She쳌fll be coming round on the mountain

Show me the way to leave home

Throw another twig on the fire

Wild shepherds washed their smocks by night

Write on

Red is the nose

Let쳌fs waltz again

The little potboiler

Farewell to the cold

Ashcan Farewell

Swing low, sweet pendulum

Roll me over in me pullover

Under the floorboards

Tittering in the chapel
