Ivor Cutler - Jammy Smears 1976 (Scotland)

On: Sunday, September 30, 2012

Ivor Cutler
Birth name
Glasgow, Scotland
  Jan 15 1923 - Mar 03 2006 age 83

Ivor Cutler's final album for Virgin Records, 1976's Jammy Smears, is one of the best releases of his career. Kicking off with the jazzy piano tune "Bicarbonate of Chicken," a funny and bizarre dialogue with a waiter, the album runs through 31 brief songs, poems, and surreal short stories like the hilarious "Big Jim." About evenly split between recitations and songs like the catchy shaggy dog story "Barabadabada" and the oddly philosophical "Everybody Got," Jammy Smears features more of Cutler's piano playing than any of his albums other than 1967's jazz trio album Ludo. His trademark droning harmonium makes only a small handful of appearances. As on its predecessor, 1975's Velvet Donkey, Cutler's friend Phyllis April King reads five of her own poems and a short story, "The Wasted Call," on Jammy Smears, all of them based on life in and around a cottage in Dorset. Because most of Cutler's pieces this time out share the rural theme, with an episode of his ongoing Life in a Scotch Sitting Room, Volume Two centered around a family walk in the country and several poems and stories about birds, bugs, and other wildlife, King's contributions are much more smoothly integrated with the whole than they had been on Velvet Donkey. Cutler's usual morbid obsessions crop up infrequently, making Jammy Smears one of his sunniest and most playful albums.

Dec 08 1933 - Nov 25 1998 age 64
Official Site

Cast in the mold of Bill Cosby, Flip Wilson was one of the most popular comics in the late '60s and early '70s, propelled by frequent appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show and talk shows. His star rose to the top with the very successful Flip Wilson Show, which often featured the comedian in the guise of Geraldine, a hip, sassy Black woman. "The devil made me do it" became a major catchphrase at the time. His records highlight Wilson during the early years as well as when his show was popular, with Flip; the Flip Wilson Show and Geraldine; Don't Fight the Feeling, featuring actual skits and guests from the show

Billy Connolly - Comedy & Songs 1999 (UK)

On: Friday, September 28, 2012

Billy Connolly
William Connolly Jr
Anderston, Glasgow, Scotland
Nov 24 1942 -

Billy Connolly's career as a singer, comedian, and television personality has taken him from the shipyards of the clyde to the stages of the world, an unlikely story given his impenetrable Glaswegian brogue and regional nature of his humor. After quitting his shipbuilding job, his first break came in the Humblebums, a musical duo with another star, Gerry Rafferty. As the monologues between songs became longer, Connolly decided to develop his own act and concentrate solo on the spoken word.  These 1974 recordings stem from the tours that made Billy Connolly the comic a household name, even if they meant Connolly the musician was to take a back seat from then on.

Jerry Clower was known as one of the country's top comedian, but he also wrote a number of books. He is not only known for his comedy, but also for his religious influence. He was born in Liberty, Mississippi, and grew up in Amite County among family and friends who became the source of his funny routines. After he graduated from high school in l944, he joined the navy.

Jerry majored in agriculture at Mississippi State and received a job with Mississippi Chemical Company where he became the Director of Field Services for his company. While working, he gained popularity when his coworkers heard his Coon Hunt Story and other comedy routines. One of his close friends suggested that Clower record an album with some of his routines. Jerry liked the idea and recorded an album under the Lemon label.
His first album was named Jerry Clower from Yazoo City Talkin', and it sold over 8,000 copies without being advertised. He received a contract with MCA in l97l, which sent his album to the billboard charts. Soon after, he recorded a second album, From the Mouth of Mississippi. His third album was called Clower Power, and his fourth was Live in Picayune. As a result of these albums, he earned the title of Country Music's funniest man.

Clower wrote several books. Let the Hammer Down is a collection of humorous events and funny anecdotes. Other books he wrote include Ain't God Good!, Life Everlaughter, and Stories from Home. He made more than thirty-two recordings and several videos. He was a member of the Grand Ole Opry until he died. In conclusion, Jerry Clower led a successful life as both a businessman and comedian. To many people, Jerry Clower was one of the funniest men who has ever lived.

Justin Wilson - Humorous World Of Justin Wilson 1961

Apr 24 1914 - Sep 05 2001 age 87(2001-09-05)(1914-04-24) -

The first time I saw Justin (Yoo-stahn) Wilson on PBS with his cooking show, I said "My Goodness! I grew up listening to his humor!!" People thought I was making it up!
This album is close to his first record if not the very first- I remember my family listening to "cousin Justin" at LEAST in the early '60s, so 1961 is probably the right date for this album. If you can EVER get a copy, DO IT! You'll never regret it! -Amazon customer
