Yes! The ascerbic comedian, Martin Mull did have a short recording career in the 1970's. This is his first album and he pokes fun at rock n'roll, the 'blues', Americans abroad, catholics, the French, you name it!
The album features both studio cuts and recordings from 'live' performances. Mull's caustic wit spares no one, including himself. He takes us on a funny, poignant ride through his life: the life of a musician and artist and all those people and things that annoy, amaze and amuse.
His song, Ukulele Blues, should be in the rock n' roll Hall of Fame for its' simple, brief, and eternally hilarious sendup of the white boy blues. After 25 years of listening to it, I still laugh and giggle out loud. Now where could you buy a 25 year laugh? I ask you.
The sound production and musicianship will not make us forget Abbey Road or Eric Clapton, but both are more than adequate to support the inspired lyrics and songwriting. The album has many great songs, a few ! decent ones and a couple of turkeys.
But, hey! Where else can you listen to messed up blues, polkas, 'Dueling Tubas' (shamelessly adapted from the Deliverance soundtrack), and a sense of humor that is as fresh today as when it was released.
If you enjoy quirky, unique and funny musical efforts, "Martin Mull and His Fabulous Living Room Furniture is for you.

If you wondered how Martin Mull's act sounded like when he was on the road, this is it. Just picture him in the middle of the stage, sitting in an armchair very much like the one on the cover. A tacky little lamp sits on the rickety table at his elbow.
MM runs the gamut here, from "Dueling Tubas" to a bottle-neck blues parody played on a ukelele. And, while his musical style may change from song to song, his patter does not.
He spends almost as much time introducing the songs as he does in the playing of them. And, in doing so, he adopts the "too hip for this room" style that he used on his talk show parodies in the mid 70s and has since been adopted by David Letterman.
Very funny stuff, played by a very talented musician.

My husband and I were just dating in 1978 when he introduced me to Martin Mull. We spent many evenings laughing while listening to this album. We received this CD just a day or two after I ordeed it on Amazon.com. So, the service was excellent and so surprised at how quick it appeared in our mailbox. The CD is either brand new or just like new and we are thrilled to own it again after so many years.

If you lived in the 1970's then you should be familiar with Martin Mull and Steve Martin. This is an amusing trip down memory lane, but you might not enjoy the ride if you were born in the 1980's.

"The blues started in the delta region of Louisiana," Martin Mull teaches us on this all-time great album.

Now, bear in mind that this album largely sold on the word of mouth associated with the air play that "Dueling Tubas" got. I bought the CD because of that cut. But, in all truth, it's "Straight Talk About the Blues" that makes the album itself.

That, and "Licks off of Records" helps us all understand what popular music is all about.

But my real question is, who is the lady with the distinctive laugh in the audience to this performance, and in what way, exactly, is she related by blood or marriage to Martin Mull??
