The Best of Lily Tomlin (The Millennium Collection)
2003: Polydor/UM B0000863-02
Merely a sampler of the mind-boggling range of character work Lily Tomlin did in the 1960s and early 1970s. Some of its understandably dated, but even so Suzie Sorority remains blindsidingly fast and hilarious, for example. I have had This Is a Recording and Modern Scream on vinyl for many years, and now that Laugh.com has released the former on CD (as of 2002) I have hopes of finally getting to hear a clean copy of, say, the confessions of Lucille the Rubber Freak (sokay, Lily, I can talk about it now. Uh, Lucille, do you have to?).
