CD Reviews

Shanklin continues with winners!
Michael J Woznicki | Holland, MA USA | 10/07/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Paul Shanklin has done it again! For the fourth time, in four tries, we have a real winner! This is the best of the four and this CD is a great blend of parodies and songs. Shanklin's has a real talent and it comes shining through on this CD.The voices of Bill, Hillary, Al and even Elvis make appearances on this CD. You find yourself laughing and thinking at the same time while listening to a great collection. You can't go wrong with this purchase.The 32 tracks, most of any CD so far, brings you IN A YUGO, SPINNIN THE LIESA AWAY and FRIENDS IN ASIAN PLACES, just to name a few, several of which have been played on the Rush Limbaugh radio program.About all that is missing is the Christmas and the Millennium Album. My only question is what will Shanklin do in when this administration leaves Washington."
This IS the funny guy!
Michael J Woznicki | 07/27/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"THIS is the funny guy on the Rush Limbaugh show! Paul does the voices of Clinton, Perot, James Carville, ALGORE and all the rest! This has the hillarious songs like "I Saw Her Derriere", "Friends In Asian Places" and the Elvis voice "In A Yugo". The comedy bits are CLASSIC, like "Minister Farrakhan's Neighborhood", the asian money scandal piece "Your Price Is Right!" and the all time knee slapper "Larry King Alive: Ken Starr, Space Alien" with the foaming at the mouth James Carville! This last bit is enough reason to buy the CD alone! This is the guy who is still on Rush's show for one simple reason ... HE IS FUNNY!!!"
Easily Shanklin's funniest CD
Daniel Jolley | Shelby, North Carolina USA | 07/08/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is easily Paul Shanklin's greatest, funniest CD. While material was never in short supply for Shanklin's acerbic political wit, the Monica Lewinsky scandal fanned the flames of political humor into an inferno of hilarity for this master parodist. Heck, these songs almost wrote themselves. This album includes 15 songs, the majority of them classics in every sense of the word. Bill Clinton wishes they could all be "White House Intern Girls" ("California Girls") and muses about the times "I Saw Her Derriere" ("I Saw Her Standing There"). Al Gore sings about his Buddhist monk campaign in "Friends in Asian Places" ("Friends in Low Places") and thanks Janet Reno for keeping him out of trouble with the song "Janet Angel" ("Johnny Angel"). Bill Clinton muses about "Perjury" but cheers himself up by declaring that his enemies' "Ain't Got No Proof" ("Up on the Roof"); in a lighter moment, he addresses Al Gore's future by admitting that there ain't nobody crazy about a "Dull Drab Man" ("Sharp Dressed Man"). Perhaps the best song on the album is Bill Clinton's collaboration with James Carville on "Spinnin' the Lies Away." Besides the great songs, there are also many funny skits interspersed throughout the CD. Bill Clinton hosts the "Your Price is Right" game show, where he sells such things as U.S. ballistic missile guidance technology to the highest bidder (China, of course). In a promo for the movie "Drag the Dog," James Carville calls in O.J. Simpson for public relations advice for President Clinton. On "Larry King Alive," Carville has no trouble convincing Larry King that Ken Starr is a Martian who wants to kill babies by giving them cigarettes. Over an hour in length, this CD is funny from start to finish and represents the pinnacle in political humor. If you want only one Paul Shanklin CD, this is definitely the one to buy."
