Great White North is the hit comedy album from Bob & Doug McKenzie, better known as SCTV veterans Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas, respectively. There's one serious problem, though. It's not very funny as a whole. The shtick is that the McKenzie brothers are lazy, beer-swilling dimwits who focus on Canadian culture and rely heavily on slang interjections and put-downs like "take off," "beauty, eh?," and "hoser." Only two selections are truly noteworthy. The first is the catchy novelty hit "Take Off," which features Rush's Geddy Lee singing on the chorus. The edited single eliminated the playful banter among Lee and the McKenzie brothers before and after the song portion. Lee's supposed reason for participating? "Ten bucks is ten bucks." The Yuletide favorite "Twelve Days of Christmas" replaces the traditional gifts with items such as beer, turtleneck sweaters, French toast, toques, backbacon, cigarettes, and comic books. The brothers are overcome by their version, and Bob McKenzie says it's comparable to "Stairway to Heaven." A few other cuts are OK. "The Beerhunter" is about a Russian roulette-like game involving shaken cans of beer. (The title spoofs 1978's Best Picture Oscar winner "The Deer Hunter," which included infamous Russian roulette scenes.) "Doug's Mouth" features goofy sound effects. Moranis and Thomas resurrected the Bob & Doug McKenzie characters for the 1983 cult film Strange Brew and beer commercials in the late '90s. ~ Bret Adams

Coming eight years after his country-flavored album The Agoraphobic Cowboy, Rick Moranis' 2013 effort is still based in musical comedy, but it goes in a completely different direction, because there's not much call for songs like "Live Blogging the Himel Family Bris" or "Kiss My Mezuzah" down at the local honky tonk. For all the schlemiels who haven't figured it out, My Mother's Brisket & Other Love Songs is the joyful and loving sound of Moranis returning to his Jewish American roots, with klezmer, jazz, folk, and nostalgic pop music supporting witty songs about food, tradition, family, and food. The title track is a rhumba where he goes on "another chivas bender" over the family dish he's ever so homesick over, while "I'm Old Enough to Be You Zaide" is the passionate Jewish tango version of Lolita or the Police's "Don't Stand So Close to Me" as our hero nervously removes his sweat-stained yarmulke and protests to the young woman "You're digital and I'm still Beta." With wonderfully alive klezmer music behind him plus the opening lines "We ran into the Feldmans, man did they look great/Mindy graduated with a 3.8" the key track "Pu-Pu-Pu" is entirely in the style of the album's main influence, '60s great novelty song artist Allan Sherman, whose style is reflected in Moranis' heavily-accented delivery, lyrics that mix the modern and the traditional, and even the album's nostalgia-filled artwork. Moranis retired from making movies in 1997, and while many would like to see him bust ghosts and shrink kids again, smart, strange projects like these are as rich and rewarding as his work for SCTV. My Mother's Brisket is delicious, delightful, and quite a tribute. Mazel tov! ~ David Jeffries
