William Shatner.
A spoken word CD.
After his releases in the 70’s, who’da thunk he’d try it again?

So…recalling seeing him on the Mike Douglas show ‘singing’ Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds when I was around 13 years old, and the resulting rolling on the floor howling with laughter, I had to get this.

After all, laughter is the best medicine and I can always use a little of that.

But damn.
It’s good.
Really good.

And I defy anyone who is not completely emotionally unavailable to listen to the 1:43 track What Have You Done and not have your heart squeeze into your throat, even for just a little bit.

You might even find a tear rolling out the corner of your eye.

And Has Been…well, it’s a song unto itself. For anyone who’s ever had that thrown at them: you can’t be a has been if you’re a never was…
