Joe DeRosa Mistakes Were Made: The B-Sides
Purchase: iTunes | Amazon
Joe DeRosa is a great comedian, steadily churning out great album after great album. So far he’s released 3 proper studio albums, the latest being 2013’s You Will Die. While DeRosa’s previous 3 albums are absolutely worth your time, here’s an album for the comedy completionist as the album’s title suggests. Taking cues from his musical idols, DeRosa released a B-Sides records. Something we don’t get much of in comedy but often get in the music world. Giving something for his fans to dive into until the next proper comedy album gets released.
The album features early bits, some he honed into material for his other records. Some are just great ideas that you’ll only find on a compilation such as this. It was recorded all over the place, in clubs DeRosa has worked in over the years. Rough audio with germs of ideas crash into the next bit. If this is your first introduction to DeRosa start with his other works, but if you’re already down with Joe D, take a listen as it’s a great track of his process.
