|The Essential Weird Al Yankovic
Lowest new price: $11.88
Lowest used price: $5.73
Brand: Sony Legacy
2009 two CD career-spanning collection of tracks hand-picked by Weird Al himself. Yankovic is a true artistic genius in the classic sense of the word. No other artist can parody a song or a music video without being directly compared to the maestro. Throughout his career, Al has offered up an alternate reality of sorts to the history of pop music, lovingly re-casting hits of all genres into bizarre and hilarious songs and videos that themselves have become hits. Al's work became so synonymous with the hits they parodied that Michael Jackson gave Al access to the 'Bad' video set to make his classic 'Fat' video! This is to say nothing of Al's original songs which are as witty and endearing as his parody work. 40 tracks.

Lowest used price: $7.05
Yikes! Includes Jingle Bells Singing Dogs; Nuttin' for Christmas Stan Freberg; Christmas at Ground Zero Weird Al Yankovic; A Christmas Carol Tom Lehrer; I'm a Christmas Tree Wild Man Fisher with Dr. Demento, and more.
The title might be immodest, but it's accurate. Just about every holiday song parody and comedy sketch you can imagine is jimmied onto this hilarious, sprawling collection. While you'll find a smattering of well-known Christmas wackiness (including "Grandma Got Run over by a Reindeer" and the Singing Dogs' "Jingle Bells"), the Doctor's specialty is unearthing the obscure, such as Wild Man Fischer's weirder-than-weird "I Am a Christmas Tree." You'll never listen to "The 12 Days of Christmas" quite the same way after hearing the spins put on the tale by both Allan Sherman and Bob and Doug McKenzie, and you're likely to check your Christmas cookie for "special ingredients" after hearing Cheech & Chong's "Santa Claus and His Old Lady." --David Sprague
|That Was The Year That Was
Lowest new price: $8.99
Lowest used price: $1.96
Certified gold by the RIAA. (2/96)
Harvard-educated mathematician by trade and sociopolitical humorist and satirist by avocation, ivory tickler Tom Lehrer sang irreverent ditties that both outraged and delighted listeners during his on-again, off-again heyday of public performance in the late 1950s through the 1970s. Perhaps best known for his "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park," Lehrer combined razor-sharp wit with dry delivery inspired by everything from vaudeville and ragtime to whimsical show tunes and faux folk. Though a tad dated, Lehrer's wickedly pointed That Was the Year That Was is as good a representation of the mid-'60s American social and political climate as any. Recorded live in 1965 and composed largely of songs from the contemporaneous NBC series That Was the Week That Was, the album takes on boho Americana ("The Folk Song Army"), censorship ("Smut"), and the atomic bomb ("Who's Next"). Devilishly funny as well are the outstanding "Vatican Rag" and the puzzle that is "New Math." --Paige La Grone
|Spaced Out: The Best of Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner
Lowest new price: $3.86
Lowest used price: $2.68
Brand: NIMOY,LEONARD & WILLIAM SHATNER
Import-only collection of solo tracks from Star Trek veterans Leonard Nimoy (Mr. Spock) and William Shatner (Captain Kirk) compiled together on one CD that goes where no man has gone before! Spaced Out is a collection of curiously compelling recordings that certainly made use of the actors' SciFi notoriety during their '60s heyday. Surreal soliloquies, mad monologues and peculiar parlance are all here! Hear Spock sing! Hear James T. Kirk 'rap'! Highly illogical, indeed. 24 tracks.
