National Lampoon - Official National Lampoon Stereo Test & Demonstration Record 1974

On: Tuesday, September 20, 2011

National Lampoon (Magazine)
Birth name
1970  -1988

The Official National Lampoon Stereo Test and Demonstration Record was a comedy album in LP format which was put out by National Lampoon magazine in 1974. The album was a parody of stereo test and demonstration records, which were used by hi-fi enthusiasts to test the performance limits of their audio systems. The tracks are titled as if they are normal audio test tracks, but in reality each one is a piece of sketch comedy. Included with the record was a 32-page booklet entitled "The Official National Lampoon Hi-Fi Primer," which was a parody of a hi-fi glossary that included real advertisements from stereo equipment manufacturers. The liner notes for the album stand as a humor piece in their own right. After each section of liner notes, the reader is "required" to take a multiple choice test to see if he/she has understood the material.
The album, liner notes, and booklet were conceived and written by Ed Subitzky. Windy Craig was the producer, and John Hechtman was the sound engineer. The album was voice acted by Subitzky, John Belushi, Chevy Chase and Emily Prager. It was narrated by Stan Sawyer. Source: Digparty
