✨✧ Mickey KatzMickey Katz Greatest Shticks ... CD
Koch/Capitol, 1950s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Genius work from Mickey Katz! Katz has been rediscovered in recent years for his reed work – but this CD presents an equally important part of his heritage: his strong commitment to borscht-belt humor! Katz still plays clarinet on most of these tracks, but the main focus is his hilarious talent for taking popular songs of the day, and "yiddishizing" them – taking the styles and lyrics of the songs, and transforming them into short little comic ditties filled with references and in-jokes from Jewish culture. If the approach sounds hokey, it's not – as Katz was a genius showman, and the songs have a sharp-edged sound that's as sinister and spellbinding as it is hilarious! Titles include "Yiddish Mule Train", "I'm A Schlemiel Of Fortune", "She'll Be Coming 'Round The Katzkills", "Bagel Call Rag", and "Where Is My Pants?" CD

Woody AllenStandup Years (Woody Allen/Woody Allen Vol 2/Third Woody Allen Album) ... CD
Colpix/Razor & Tie, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
Incredible early standup work by Woody Allen – a lost side of his genius, represented here on three rare albums from the 60s! If you only know Allen as a director, or actor on screen, this work is a real revelation – recorded at a time when Woody was a young, talented comedy writer for television and just getting initial exposure as a comedian – but already graced with the kind of self-aware wit that we love so much in his funny films from the 70s! There's a freshness here that still stands out – and the package features two full albums issued by the Colpix label, one more issued by Capitol, and some bonus audio excerpts that feature Allen speaking about his standup years.
