Looking at the liner notes credits, 1979's "White Album" seemed to have been stitched together from odds and ends spanning the entire National Lampoon radio show catalog. Listening to the album, two things jumped out at me: 1.) How many of the performer names I didn't recognize and 2.) How unfunny much of this collection was (even my six year old thought 'Fartman' was pathetic). Anyhow, rather than go through all 17 selections, why don't I save everyone the time and effort and simply list the handful of selections that were worth hearing.

- With Tony Scheuren sounding like the ultimate used car salesman, 'The Sounds of Physical Love' had such a weren't-the-'70s-cool vibe that you simply had to snicker. rating: *** stars
- One of the oldest tracks, 'Gay Alliance' featured John Belushi, Chevy Chase, and Christopher Guest on a nice homage to Hollywood's toughest 'he-man' stars. rating: **** stars
- Written and sung by Tony Scheuren, 'What About Reupholsterers?' wasn't particularly funny, but delivered the best Johnny Cash impersonation I've ever heard. rating: **** stars
- Again, it wasn't particularly funny, but 'What Turns Women On' probably held more truth than most men cared to hear. rating: *** stars

All told a clear and sad sign National Lampoon was rapidly losing their edge. (I had to snicker when I noticed that current CD pressings carry a parental warning notification.)
