Andy Kaufman still needles, on tape
The sound quality will remind you of lectures you taped in college with your own microcassette recorder. The rhythms range from casual moments to elaborate put-ons in the manner Kaufman favored. You can hear Kaufman pretend to have an angry dialogue with what might be a squealing pig. You can even hear him debriefing a woman he just slept with, and her disbelief that he actually wants to record what she has to say about his performance.
