William E. McEuen Presents The Steve Martin Brothers by The Steve Martin Brothers.
The Steve Martin Brothers, released on LP in 1981, is a comedy album by American actor Steve Martin. The album, the last stand-up comedy album released by Martin, was released on compact disc in 2006 by Wounded Bird Records.
With regard to Steve Martin's discography, "the worst" is how The Steve Martin Brothers is usually tagged, which isn't so harsh when you consider some of his other albums are classics or just plain old good. It's an oddball release for sure, with half devoted to standup - very loose and ess standup - and the other half showing off Martin's self-taught banjo playing and his love of lively bluegrass. The worst thing about the album is the sloppy way the standup side is put together.
Let’s Get Small (1977) is an album by American comedian Steve Martin. It includes "Excuse Me", a comedy bit whose title went on to become a national catchphrase. The album went platinum and peaked at No. 10 on the Billboard Pop Albums Chart. It was recorded at The Boarding House in San Francisco, California. This album won the Grammy Award in 1978 for Best Comedy Album.
He issued four excellent comedy albums for WB in the late 1970s, one of which has never been issued on CD anywhere in the world until now! The Steve Martin Brothers is a unique production, side one of the album contained comedy material from his live shows. Side two was all bluegrass music, Steve playing banjo along with his cronies John McEuen & Vassar Clements.

Based on the album cover photos, the title of the album refers to the two sides of Martin that are showcased on the album: The Rich Comedian, showcased on Side One, and the Peace-Loving Hippie Banjo player, showcased on Side Two. Although his self-taught banjo playing had been featured on previous albums, it was never showcased until this album. The album was also his lowest selling album to date as well, and went uncertified. Despite its poor reception, the album was nominated in 1982 for a Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album.
