Comedian Murray Roman was one of the great observational humorists that sprung up in the early 1960's and became, like his contemporary, George Carlin, a comedian who spoke to the growing counter-culture in a way that combined the realism of Lenny Bruce with the brewing hippie movement. Roman appeared on television quite often; on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show, in skits on Batman, as a writer and occasional skit man on the controversial Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, and as a choice opening act for major rock bands like The Doors and Country Joe and The Fish. Roman remains something of an enigma today, and his original comedy LPs are scarce and highly valued among collectors. Unfortunately, Roman remains a scarcely remembered underground figure as well, mainly because his life was cut short in his prime when he died tragically in a car accident in 1973. Presented here, for the first time in the digital domain, is Roman's first comedy album, Out Of Control, originally released in 1961 and featuring a bit about skiing that he later performed on the Smother Brothers Comedy Hour.
