Varèse Vintage Records, specialists in catalog reissues, proudly announces the following comedy releases for the fall.
The Credibility Gap “The Bronze Age Of Radio”
Selections From Their legendary
Los Angeles Radio Comedy Series
The Credibility Gap began as a satirical daily newscast on rock station KRLA-AM, Los Angeles in the late 1960s. They developed sketches and songs to punctuate the news, and soon comedians started appearing among the newsmen, including Harry Shearer (This Is Spinal Tap, The Simpsons), David L. Lander (Laverne & Shirley, Saturday Night Live), and Michael McKean (This Is Spinal Tap, Laverne & Shirley, Saturday Night Live).
• This collection of their classic satirical on-air radio newscasts has been unavailable for over 25 years, and is now on CD for first time.
• Features new notes written by Harry Shearer.
• Includes a special appearance by Albert Brooks.
“Take My Album Please or Two Sets For The Price Of One”
Release date: November 6, 2007
Henny Youngman was a comedian and violinist famous for “one-liners,” short, simple jokes usually delivered rapid-fire, occasionally with interludes of violin playing. His best-known one-liner is “Take my wife, please!”
This collection of his classic one-liners has been unavailable for over 10 years.
An additional 20 minutes of very funny previously unreleased outtakes have been added to the original 34-minute album.
