|The Essential Weird Al Yankovic
Lowest new price: $8.94
Lowest used price: $4.70
List price: $15.98
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.

|Dr. Demento 20th Anniversary Collection: The Greatest Novelty Records Of All Time
Lowest new price: $17.75
Lowest used price: $2.34
List price: $24.98
The keeper of the keys to crazy comedy celebrates two decades of madcap broadcasting with this collection of favorites! (For more Dr. Demento, see also Holiday and Kid Rhino sections.) Certified Gold by the RIAA. (11/01)
Pop has a good time eating itself on this collection of Doctor Demento favorites. The tunes on this stylistically varied double CD send up a plethora of pop culture phenomena. The perpetrators come from every imaginable entertainment background. Pro wrestlers, folk singers, comedians, actors, garage bands--you never know who's liable to produce a novelty song. Here it doesn't matter if a respected composer or a one-hit wonder recorded the ditty; all sorts of tracks jostle each other on this funny collection. The material covers quite a time span, ranging from Spike Jones's "Der Fuehrer's Face," released in 1942, to "Wappin'," an unreleased track by Darrell Hammond and Christopher Snell which was a hit on Demento's radio show at the tail end of the 1980s. The 20th Anniversary Collection is quite an assortment of the corny, goofy, wacky, and wild. --Fred Cisterna

|Spaced Out: The Best of Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner
Lowest new price: $3.90
Lowest used price: $2.82
List price: $10.98
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.

|Grammar Rock (Schoolhouse Rock 1973)
Lowest new price: $29.99
Lowest used price: $20.01
List price: $11.98
Schoolhouse Rock owns the bragging rights to being the hippest musical vehicle to elementary education. Grammar Rock is a particularly compelling volume, bringing jazz vocal legend Bob Dorough to the lyrical table, untangling the secrets of the English language in a way that's both entertaining and instructive. The music is never less than humorously beguiling, comfortable in its simplicity and yet unafraid to dance outside the lines. Yes, the music sounds a tad manufactured, but this is the soundtrack for Generation X's early education. And, yes, this is a short CD--clocking in at 27 minutes--but it's not about length, it's about ideas. --Andrew Bartlett
|My Son, The Greatest: The Best Of Allan Sherman
Lowest new price: $3.61
Lowest used price: $0.61
List price: $7.98
Oy vay ! It's a 19-track "best-of" from the one and only Allan Sherman, featuring the immortal Hello Mudduh, Hello Fadduh ! Also here are Allan's twisted version of Downtown (entitled Crazy Downtown ), plus Pop Hates the Beatles; Shticks of One, Half a Dozen of the Other; Hail to Thee , and more.
This collection gathers 19 of Sherman's humorous story-songs. The comic uses original lyrics and pre-existing tunes to poke fun at television shows and consumer items, to send-up the kids and generally riff on early and mid-'60s American pop culture. On tracks like "Pop Hates the Beatles" and "Crazy Downtown," his subject is the generation gap. "Al 'n Yetta" portrays a TV-dependent couple while "Lotsa Luck" describes the complicated hassles of dealing with faulty TVs and new-fangled tape recorders. Sherman assumed his audience had a little knowledge of history, too. On "Good Advice" and "You Went the Wrong Way, Old King Louie," he sings about inventors and French history, respectively. It's hard to imagine contemporary comedians working the historical beat. "One Hippopatami" is a delightfully goofy festival of wordplay that requires only a love of language and a tolerance for schmaltz. --Fred Cisterna
