"This CD collects Mad Magazine related recordings from years gone by and today. Unfortunately, with only 12 cuts, it's a lot shorter than it could have been. It doesn't include the first Mad related single, "What, Me Worry?". And there is nothing from the first Mad album, Musically Mad. The CD starts off with one hilarious song from Mad Twists Rock 'N' Roll. It's too bad they didn't include more songs from this great album. Then we have two funny songs from the almost as great album Fink Along With Mad. "It's a Gas" has become something of a cult classic. Then we have two songs from the off-Broadway production The Mad Show. These songs are a bit more sophisticated than the previous ones, if a bit less funny. The rest of the old songs are from rare flexi-discs originally included with copies of Mad Magazine. This is funny stuff, but there is a bit too much disco music included. I would have liked them to include "Super Spectacular Day", but what can you do? The final two songs here are new versions of songs that originally appeared on Mad Twists Rock 'N' Roll. They are not bad, but I would have preferred to have the original versions of the songs. Fans of novelty songs should enjoy this CD."
