After already singing on Voyager episodes such as 'Virtuose' and at several Star Trek conventions, Robert Picardo (the Holodoc) has now released a new music CD containing 30 minutes of his song parodies.
Entitled 'basic bob: parodies, travesties, anomalies', the CD is now available through the Central Alliance of Robert Picardo Enthusiasts (CARPE), Picardo's official fan club. The CD includes twelve tracks and nine original song parodies with lyrics written by Picardo himself, and has a running time of 30 minutes. Most of the songs were already performed live at conventions by Picardo, where he is always a popular guest, though there is also one completely new song included on the CD.
The cover of each CD (shown above) features an authentic original autograph by Picardo himself, undoubtedly raising its value for collectors. The price of the CD is $20 per CD, plus $2 for uninsured shipping to US addresses and another $1.10 for insured shipping. Uninsured shipping to European addresses costs $4.00.
Sales from the CD will also benefit charity, with 20% of the proceeds from the sale going to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation. This fund has been a favourite charity of Voyager stars over the years, with the Official Jeri Lynn Ryan Homepage's charity auctions and the recent Voyager Champagne Brunch Cruise both benefiting the Elizabeth Glaser Foundation.
In order to obtain the CD, you will need to send payment and an order form to CARPE. Information on how to do so can be found by following this link. Please note that the above cover image is copyrighted by Robert Picardo and courtesy of the CARPE web site.
