While William Shatner was working on a certain ratings-deprived television series involving intergalactic exploration, he spent his off-hours at the studio recording this gem. Combining popular songs of the era with Shakespeare and some of the trippiest "you have to hear them to believe them" arrangements ever recorded. Like Star Trek, it's cult following continued growing after it's initial run, and it has since become one of the most legendary celebrity records of all time. With the release of his new Shout! Factory album, Has Been, and his recent Emmyr-award and starring role in The Practice's high profile spin-off TV series, Boston Legal, with James Spader, interest in William Shatner has never been higher. This timely re-issue will surely be a must-have for fans both old and new for years to come.

|An Evening Wasted With Tom Lehrer
Lowest new price: $6.25
Lowest used price: $0.01
Setting his bitterly caustic lyrics against nice bouncy piano, Tom's recordings spread like wildfire in the mid-to-late-'50s. Recorded live at Harvard, this musical-comedy classic from '59 includes We Will All Go Together When We Go; Poisoning Pigeons in the Park; The Masochism Tango; In Old Mexico , and more!
"If, after hearing my songs," Lehrer says in this disc's liner notes, "just one human being is inspired to say something nasty to a friend, or perhaps strike a loved one, it will all have been worth the while." Makes him sound like a modern punk, eh? Not so, though. Lehrer, ever the king of jolly vitriol, recorded these still potent parodies in the '50s--and the best of them, "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park," "The Masochism Tango," and "The Elements" (which joins science with Gilbert & Sullivan) remain both nasty and striking. Musically, Lehrer comes across like a demented Cole Porter, wrapping sophisticated, showy tunes around his acerbic jokes. Lyrically, he's a clear forebear to folks like Phil Ochs and Barry Crimmins, who also cloak their commentary in comedy. --Michael Ruby

More than 35 years after the release of his debut solo album, William Shatner teams up with Ben Folds to create Has Been, a surprisingly pop-driven, lyrically potent collection of songs written by the duo. With the exception of 'Trying,' co-written by Folds and novelist Nick Hornby (High Fidelity, About A Boy), 'Real' by Brad Paisley, and Pulp's 'Common People,' Shatner proves to be a witty and self-deprecating poet, while Folds' talent for crafting the perfect pop melody has never been more evident. Has Been will be released on October 5th by Shout! Factory.
After his rendition of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" on the infamous Golden Throats album (though it first appeared on the Transformed Man LP), one could argue that the world needed a new William Shatner album about as much as it needed a big-screen remake of TJ Hooker. But Shatner's back all the same with an intriguing, introspective collection of mostly spoken-word tracks that are all the more compelling when it becomes clear that Has Been is, in fact, no joke. Ben Folds played on and produced the record, creating rich, melodic, and varied pop musical backgrounds to Shatner's world-weary, boozy-suave yet thoroughly impassioned delivery. Joe Jackson, Aimee Mann, Henry Rollins, Brad Paisley, and Adrian Belew also stop by to lend their divergent talents. Highlights include the Rollins/Shatner rant "I Can't Get Behind That" and the Folds/Mann/Shatner collaboration "That's Me Trying", which tells the painful story of an attempted family reconciliation. Shatner mixes a healthy amount of self-awareness with a just a dollop of self-mockery and then combines it all with plenty of raw vulnerability to create an effect that is surprisingly touching, highly entertaining, and unlike any music you've ever heard. --John Moe
