From the All Music Guide:
For Live From New York, Gilda Radner compiled her most famous bits from Saturday Night Live and performed them in front of a Broadway audience. Emily Litella attempts to teach at a rough inner-city school ("Get fudged? I don't care for it, it's too sweet!"), Roseanne Roseannadanna gives a commencement address that deteriorates into a description of lancing a boil, and Patti Smith clone Candy Slice slurs her way through "Gimme Mick." Though some of the laughter is frustratingly directed at clearly visual jokes, much of the performances are funny, and the presence of the cheerfully obscene "Let's Talk Dirty to the Animals," which would have never made it onto network TV, is especially amusing. The only odd moment is the closing number, "Honey (Touch Me With My Clothes On)," a maudlin ballad that seems too sincere to be a parody and full of quirky lyrics that render it too offbeat to be straight.

The tracks are:
1 Let's Talk Dirty to the Animals (O'Donolghue) 2:29
2 The Audition/I Love to Be Unhappy 3:48
3 Don Kirshner/Rhonda Weiss Introduction/Goodbye Saccharine 7:47
4 Lisa Loopner Piano Recital: "The Way We Were" 8:04
5 If You Look Close/Gimme Mick 6:58
6 Emily Litella 5:08
7 Roseanne Roseannadanna 8:04
8 Honey (Touch Me With My Clothes On) 4:49

The Sound of Building Coffins
by Louis Maistros

"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
