Bruce Campbell and Ted Raimi have cut a comedy album. The Lost Recordings sounds absolutely bonkers and we love it.
Bruce Campbell and Ted Raimi have a cut a comedy album. Per our interview with Bruce last week, the actor let us in on the fact that he was in post working on adding sound effects.
Now, Inquisitr has gotten some new intel on this project from the man himself. Here is what we know so far.
Fans of Ted Raimi are aware that he has a fondness for anything and everything vintage, down to his sartorial taste and his listening habits. He even had a web series entitled, “Deathly Spirits,” which was done in the style of E.G. Marshall’s CBS Radio Mystery Theater Show where he told ghost stories and instructed his audience on how to mix classic drinks.
His buddy, Bruce also admits to being keen on old radio plays and comedy routines like Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner’s 2,000 Year Old Man. That being said, during this time of self-isolation and quarantine, the two Shemp’s put their heads together and came up with The Lost Recordings.
It is exactly what it sounds like, a compilation of “found” outtakes curated by the host of this endeavor, Lames Jipton. Now, for anyone that has ever watched Bravo’s Inside the Actor’s Studio, immediately knows that this is the alternate Raimi/Campbell universe version of the beloved, late theater aficionado, James Lipton.
Jipton presents us with several, surprising exchanges that have never been heard before courtesy of the National Archives and movie studios. For our listening pleasure, there will be a meeting between “The Duke” (John Wayne) and President Kennedy that went off the rails as well as an exclusive behind the scenes look at Sean Connery in Zardoz.
Trust us, if you have never seen that schlocky, sci-fi B-movie classic rectify that immediately. You can stream it at You Tube, iTunes, Google Play, VUDU and Amazon Prime.
Campbell has stated a tentative release for this off-the-wall production for fall. Stay tuned for more news on The Lost Recordings when it becomes available.
