"Oh my yes! Martin Mull did have a very good recording career back in the early seventies when he produced several very witty jazz albums with his band "the furniture". In many ways he was a better guitar player than a comedian. I wish that Capricorn would release his other albums in CD Form. Very, very entertaining."
Marty's Best! And then some!

"Those of you who know Martin Mull as an actor/pitchman or as he would prefer you to know him, as an artist, may not know that he put out a pile of albums on the Capricorn, ABC and Elektra labels in the 70s. It's the Capricorn years, when he did his best stuff, that is compiled and celebrated here. Much of Marty's eponymous first album is here: "Ventriloquist Love" (I have fond memories of playing this song for my favorite High School English Teacher and watching her literally fall on the floor laughing), "Eggs", "Partly Marion", "Margie the Midget," "Hors d'oeuvre" and the FM-radio favorite Dancing in the Nude, which Benny Hill of all people once performed on his TV show.What's particularly interesting about many of these tracks are the fantastic musicians. Check out the soloing on "Partly Marion" and you'll see why not too many people "got" what Mull was trying to do.This is a fantastic CD--great liner notes and the sound is excellent. Prepare to laugh yourself silly, but in an intelligent way!"
Missing at sea! Men!

"Great collection! But where is his biggest hit Men. Very well known around the East coast in the day! "Men Men Men...It's a ship all filled with men...So throw your rubbers overboard there's no one here but Men!" Or how about They Never Met, a fun little duet with Melissa Manchester. Even though material is dated, it is still very funny to those of us who understand. How about releasing Lilly Tomlin-On Stage?"
