Wankers’ Guide to Canada

A curious 1986 comedy/music concept album featuring the talents of many SCTV alumni (Eugene Levy, Martin Short, Rick Moranis, Dave Thomas, Catherine O’Hara), The Nylons, Ian Thomas and others. Excellent production values and pretty funny in an anarchic Firesign Theater/Monty Python kind of way.

Edwin Starr: Hell Up In Harlem

Excellent 1974 blaxploitation soundtrack. The movie was a sequel to 1973s Black Caesar which had a soundtrack by James Brown.
