Incredibly Strange by
The Best of Marcel Marceao. MGM Records. Great for parties!
Is his last name spelled incorrectly to avoid a lawsuit? I thought it was “Marceau.”
Check the playlist, on each side:
1. Silence (19:00)
2. Applause (1:00)
OK, them, an inside joke for the record industry. Ha, ha. Check it out at
(scroll down for the story or search “Marceau”).
I don’t how much of an inside of joke it was.
In high School a review for it appearred “Voice”, a periodical given away, I think, from Scholastic Book Services. It was actually the lead review that issue.
I also once owned it.
The liner notes were a real hoot in terms of 1968-1969 pop culture.
I remember later there was a gag book (late ’70s?) called The Nothing Book which had a bunch of blank pages, and eventually there was an accompanying Nothing Album.
I remember the same book with the title “The Wit and Wisdom of Spiro Agnew”
Does Anyone Know where to pick up a copy i have looked over ebay about a million times as well as musicstack would love to get a copy of this!
My copy of the album was autographed by Marcel at City Center in NY back in 1973.
