Firesign Theatre

Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers

1970

Comedy

An evening of late night television sometime after World War III: George Tirebiter and his pals try to find their stolen high school, someone has changed the water, Joe Beets demands shoes for industry, and the pizza guy still won't come up into the hills. Quite simply, the greatest comedy album ever made.

Bobby Charles

1972

New Orleans R&B

Hearing the languid and earthy sounds enveloping Bobby Charles' New Orleans R&B and laid-back soul, it is no surprise that this album was co-produced by The Band's Rick Danko and their close collaborator John Simon. The songs roll around the studio with a loose and earnest push, an easy groove perfect for a sunny afternoon or back porch hang.
