4.0 out of 5 stars Some incredibly funny stuff, some not so much... September 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to remember what a cultural force Nat Lamp was in the 1970's. Only an institution such as the Lampoon could have helped to create the keystone epic "Animal House" and, of course "SNL", arguably the two most important and influential comedy forces of the decade. So it is with this in mind that I try to remain at least mildly unbiased in my assessment of this disc as, frankly, some of it absolutely first rate, even thirty years later. And some of it is, well...

So, why should you buy this disc? Well, here's why you shouldn't: "Save The Whales" is good for one listen only, and frankly, should have been done much better; "I'm A Woman" is a testiment to the fact that Gilda Radner was both overrated and, at times, incredibly annoying (although, in all fairness to her, the material itself was dated and silly probably 18 months after it was first recorded and would have been if anyone else had done it); "Pizza Man", a "tribute" to vocal stylings of 1950's rock/doo-wop that comes across as one of those "Is this supposed to be funny or just stupid?" moments; and "Those Fabulous Sixties" which is a head scratcher in terms of why in the hell this one was included. So, you ask, what is left? What is left indeed. The remaining tracks teeter between incredibly funny to sheer, total brilliance. "Deteriorata" is an amazing, and amusing, parody of the incredibly insipid "Desidorata", one of the top selling singles of the early 70's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get This Amazing Record Package! October 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This 1978 release harkens back to the days when almost everyone in college knew what "NatLamp" was, National Lampoon, the hottest college comedy magazine there was. A good three years before the Not Ready for Prime Time Players introduced an entirely new generation of comedy to a USA waking up to the schlocky comedic drudge of Uncle Milty, Jack Benny and Foster Brooks, these guys and gals were laying the groundwork with biting irreverence, funny takes on violence and sex, and liberal profanity. A few short years later they brought us Animal House, then the Vacation series of films before the magazine crumbled and they flared out.

There's some heavy-duty comedy horsepower in here, with Chris Guest, Bill Murry, Chevy Chase, John Belushi, Michael "Mister Mike" O'Donoghue, Gilda Radner, Harold Ramis and Paul Shaffer. You only get 13 short tracks, which was a lot on an LP, but which doesn't last long in a CD player. There's a mix of studio tracks and recordings from National Lampoon live shows.

This is a classic collection for those who remember it. If you liked it then, you still will, although you won't be listening to this release as often as you did way back when. I've run this past my teenage kids, and they just plain don't get it. Like Jack Benny before it, it's now dated, with a lot of the jokes needing that now-missing 70s context, in vocabulary, current events, and cultural touchstones (when was the last time you heard someone called a "turkey?").

4.0 out of 5 stars Embrace the Misery! January 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is an absolute must-have, because "Magical Misery Tour" is just about the funniest thing ever recorded. Give it a listen and you too will shriek "Mother! They're trying to crucify me!"
