The Little Red Songbook (Le Grand Magistery 61665-60006) is an album released by Momus in 1998. It features a number of karaoke versions of the songs that were used for a singing contest. The winners of the contest appear on the CD Stars Forever. Momus describes the album's style as part of his "analogbaroque" phase: "an odd blend of classicism and kitschy futurism."
The original release of this CD contained a controversial song entitled "Walter Carlos". In 1998, the subject persona of the song, Wendy Carlos, a transgender artist who had first come to fame releasing albums under her birth name Walter Carlos, sued Momus for $22 million. The case was settled out of court, with Momus agreeing to remove it from the CD and owing $30,000 in legal fees. Subsequent releases of the CD do not include the song.
Other songs include "MC Escher", a pun on M.C. that imagines a rapper who can do the impossible, as M. C. Escher routinely did in his art.
