Moving right along, I do believe that any pop culture/humor collection would not be complete without Celebrity Vinyl. Tom Hamling's lovingly assembled trophies of wackdom are truly priceless. Jerry Lewis Just Sings (is this a blessing or a curse?); Songs I Like by Dick Van Dyke (no grey cells were expended in coming up with that title); Merv Griffin's A Tinkling Piano in the Next Apartment ("shaddup already!"); The Two Sides of Telly Savalis (one is pushing it); John Davidson's Well Here I Am (well duh!), The Odd Couple Sings (including "You're So Vain"—I kid you not), and multiple horrors by John Travolta and Jimmy Swaggart.
