Don't Chase After This One

A flop which soon went out of print, Chevy Chase's self-titled musical comedy album [Arista-1980] is probably what you think it would be: a slickly-produced, self-indulgent mess, indeed, but one that must be heard at least once.

Is he singing "Let it Be" in a chipmunk voice? Does he list numerous celebrities of limited physical stature in his parody of Randy Newman's "Short People"? Does the album actually close out with with Chase's take on "Rapper's Delight", called "Rapper's Plight"?

Click here and find out for yourself. You'll be quite glad he's Chevy Case and you're not.
