When I was first approached about an album of Late Night’s best musical performances, I was thrilled.  The concept seemed brilliant.  It was only later, when they told me that I wouldn’t actually be singing the songs, that I lost all interest in the project.  Crushed, I turned to cheap wine and let my staff work out the details.  I hope you enjoy their efforts.  Frankly, I think we missed a golden opportunity.
