Overview

The Capitol Steps are in great form with these brilliant parodies from the early '90s. With all of the colorful and often empty-headed politicians providing great ideas with their antics, the group was inspired to spoof the Beach Boys with "Fun, Fun, Fun 'Til Teddy Puts His T-Shirt Away" (skewering the middle-aged Teddy Kennedy, who still was behaving like a college student on spring break); the Bee Gees with "Slipped Disco (Keep Him Alive)," mocking Dan Quayle waiting for the possibility of George Bush's passing; muckraking author Kitty Kelley with "I Feel Petty"; the age-old drinking song transformed into a lampoon of Los Angeles Police Chief Daryl Gates with "Roll Out the Daryl"; and the Congressionally guaranteed debts that floundered in "76 Bad Loans." Unlike many of their later CDs, most of the tracks on this release were recorded in the studio instead of in front of audiences, except for the last two tracks, including the brilliant Dr. Seuss-inspired "Three Eggs and Ham."
