Yeah, seems like every one and every thing had a disco album in the late 70s. The thing is, though, they're more amusing now than they were then.
More info on the show here.

Canadian children's entertainer Eric Nagler has an album...
I know that doesn't have to mean what we would automatically think of upon seeing it, but come on! Surely another word would've sufficed, Eric. :p
Seriously, though, he is an excellent entertainer. Saw him on The Elephant Show many, many times growing up. I loved his homemade instruments, especially the sewerphone.

Fun, weird cover, though. Hey, baby, watch out for that giant man looming over the mountains!
Cute baby. I doubt it's him as a child, though. I've looked at other albums of his and they're pretty standard mugshots.
Fun fact (from wiki): Bohannon is a devout Christian and dedicated his album "Dance Your Ass Off" to "God and His Son, Jesus Christ". The album also included a disclaimer that "The word 'ass' is not used here in the sense of profanity." No? Then what, it's about a donkey? :p

I saw the play at Moncton High School several years ago. They did a great job! I still dig the movie, too. :)

You can tell that it's an old album when he's on the cover.
I was only 5 when he died and I don't remember that time too well, but I never forgot the character. Some good info on Mr. Hooper (Will Lee) here.

Classic comedy rock album. Their biggest hit was 1982's "Metal Head", which I heard many years ago (1994-ish) and thought was pretty funny. Catchy, too! See it here. "I Wanna Be a Lifeguard" was another fun hit. (here)
Check out their official site here!

Yes, everyone with a modicum of fame had a record in the 80's, including TV star Adrian Zmed, most famous for his roles in T.J. Hooker, Grease and Grease-related...things.
