Great news, everyone. Steve Martin has been nominated for six International Bluegrass Music Association Awards for his banjo album, The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo. Half of which was already released 28 years ago, according to The Globe and Mail:
The album’s subtitle is deceiving – many of the songs are not new, but rerecorded versions of tunes from his 1981 comedy album The Steve Martin Brothers, which featured a complete side of banjo tracks recorded in the seventies. [Ed. – That sounds rip-roaringly funny. I’m sure people who bought a comedy album weren’t disappointed at all.]
I tell you what. I’m just fine with this. In fact, I hope he wins all six IBMA awards. Keep him focused on this banjo thing so he doesn’t make Pink Panther 3: Pink Pimpin’ it in Da Hood. Peter Sellers is and always will be Clouseau, and I will fight to the death mild discomfort anyone who says otherwise.
Below is a clip from The Pink Panther followed by a clip from The Jerk (with stranger-in-the-alps-style TV edits). What the hell happened? He seems to have forgotten the difference between sh-t and shinola.
