The World's Most Dangerous Party was Paul Shaffer's second album, released as a double CD in July 1993. Assembled as if Paul and his band were playing live at a house party, the album features the voices, but not necessarily singing, of many celebrities and recording artists like David Letterman, Tony Bennett, George Clinton, Joan Jett, Phil Spector, Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, Jon Lovitz, Richard Belzer and Joe Walsh. All songs on the album were covers and most were instrumental, similar to the versions played by Paul Shaffer and his band on David Letterman's late night talk shows. It was produced, engineered, and mixed by rock icon Todd Rundgren. Assistant engineered by Mike Thompson at The Hit Factory recording studios.
Shaffer's band was billed as "The Party Boys of Rock 'n' Roll" because NBC held a trademark on the phrase "World's Most Dangerous Band." (CBS, where the band would arrive later that year, would also hold the trademark on the name the band would use next, the "CBS Orchestra.")
