Editorial Reviews

The late great Phil Hartman’s first foray into the recording studio was once lost to the sands of time: The tapes mysteriously disappeared soon after they were produced in the late 1970s. In this posthumous release, the master of impressions introduces listeners to the Sphincter family, their satirical spoofing of the American "nuclear family" strikingly similar to that of The Simpsons’, with whom Hartman would cement his renown over a decade later. Indeed, listeners are treated to that same delightfully smarmy baritone - seething with instantaneous satire - that would become Hartman’s hallmark, whether he was playing buttery businessman Lionel Hutz, or famously farcing Frank Sinatra on SNL. Unctuous but upbeat, these hilarious caricatures continue to resonate as priceless parodies of American culture, politics, and family life.
