Unchartables Vol. I
Recorded Live at The Sacred Fools Theater, Los Angeles
"Funny! Great job, man...." -- Chris Miller, writer, "Animal House"
After penning Burt Reynoldss country novelty hit Lets Do Something Cheap and Superficial many, many, many years ago, songwriter Richard Levinson descended into the dark world of advertising music, writing jingles for shopping malls, restaurants,furniture warehouses, newspapers, plumbing supply distributors, waterbeds, jewelers, car dealers,newspapers, piano stores, supermarkets, sauerkraut, frozen desserts, miniature golf courses, beers, wines, banks, the California Egg Commission, the LSU womens basketball team and one very large discount brokerage.
To atone for this, he has over the years also written comedy music and satiric songs -- which he quite appropriately calls Unchartables. Some of these have appeared in productions by MTV, National Lampoon, Fox/HBO and Disney Television Animation. His songs were also featured regularly on the Dr. Demento syndicated radio show.
