Joy of Sax

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
With Bill Clinton taking over as president in 1993, he naturally became the center of attention for the latest collection of musical parodies by the witty collective known as the Capitol Steps. Mike Tilford, who sings as Clinton, is brilliant in the Elvis Presley-flavored "The Joy of Sax" and the low-key duet with Ann Schmitt as the First Lady in "I've Taken Stands on Both Sides Now," as well as the wild spoof "Secret Ozone Man." Schmitt is superb in "Why's Madonna Kissing Santa Claus?" and Bob Dylan fans will howl and recognize themselves in middle age or possibly just protest after hearing "Like a Suburban Drone." The excessive overall focus on Clinton and a few weak ...

The excessive overall focus on Clinton and a few weak tracks make this CD a cut below most of the releases recorded by the Capitol Steps during the 1990s, though it is still well worth picking up.

    This is not my favorite album by the Capitol Steps, though I'm still glad I bought it. While I don't usually like sexual humor, the parodies that focus on the topic (well before news of the Clinton sex scandals made the front pages), are funny enough without crossing that fine line into the off-color. I particularly enjoy the Simi Valley rap, the Bob Dylan parody, the West Side Story take on the Clinton cabinet, the Sound-Off spoof, the Somali Wali Doodle, and the title track. These songs are enough to make the recording worthwhile, no matter what one thinks of the rest.
