Before Woody Allen became the prolific director responsible for such classics as Manhattan and Annie Hall, he was a well-received stand-up. During his tenure as an in-demand touring comedian, he released three albums: 1964’s Woody Allen, 1965’s Volume 2, and 1968’s The Third Woody Allen Album.On January 13th, Allen’s entire discography is being reissued in a new commemorative box set. The Stand Up Years: 1964-1968 spans two discs and also includes exclusive material and bonus interviews taken from 2012’s Woody Allen: A Documentary.As a preview of the release, Allen has unveiled an exclusive audio excerpt from the film.

I have spent alot of time talking about Woody Allen films on this blog and looking at his worldview. He has a hopelessmeaningless, nihilistic worldview that believes we are going to turn to dust and there is no afterlife. Even though he has this view he has taken the opportunity to look at the weaknesses of his own secular view. I salute him for doing that. That is why I have returned to his work over and over and presented my own Christian worldview as an alternative.

My interest in Woody Allen is so great that I have a “Woody Wednesday” on my blog www.thedailyhatch.org every week. Also I have done over 30 posts on the historical characters mentioned in his film “Midnight in Paris.” (Salvador DaliErnest Hemingway,T.S.Elliot,  Cole Porter,Paul Gauguin,  Luis Bunuel, and Pablo Picassowere just a few of the characters.)
