Albert BrooksStar Is Bought ... CD
Asylum/Wounded Bird, 1975. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
A wonderfully hip comedy album from the early years of Albert Brooks – very much in the spirit of the LA Warner scene of which Brooks was a part! The album's set up as an "all format radio" record – and as such, also offers a great snapshot of mid 70s radio – with tracks that are attempts to cash in on the nostalgia, talk radio, classical, country, and other growing formats of the time. As such, the record's got some really great bits that show Brooks' off-kilter sense of humor strongly, in the same manner as early classic films like Real Life and True Love, and works in a genre-spanning style that's pretty darn great. Brooks really uses the format of the album as part of the comedy – he doesn't just tell jokes, but he works together in an overall mix of sound, music, and words – very similar to the best format of the early National Lampoon albums – which makes the whole thing as much of a masterpiece in audio creativity as it is a darn funny record! The set was co-written and produced with Harry Shearer, and Brooks gets help from Andrew Gold, Sid Feller, and a range of other LA jazz musicians – and routines include the great radio parody "Phone Calls From Americans", plus "The Albert Brooks Show 112", "The Beginning Of The End", "Near The Beginning", and "Party From Outer Space".

BlowflyBlowfly's Party ... LP
Weird World, 1980. Very Good ... $4.99
It's the end of the 70s, but Blowfly's still going strong on this album! The record features his "Blowfly's Rapp" – billed as "the dirtiest rap ever heard", and certainly true in those pre-gangsta days! The rest of the tracks are a mix of boogie grooves, late 70s club rhythms, and a few southern soul numbers – all featuring x-rated lyrics from Blow. Titles include "Blowfly's Rapp", "Can I Come In Your Mouth", "Who Did I Eat Last Night?", "Nobody's Butt But Yours, Babe", and "Panty Lines". (Soul, Comedy/Spoken) LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing.)
