Format: Audio CD
After gaining fame with his 1962 debut My Son the Folk Singer and launching a #2 hit with 1963's "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh!," Allan Sherman embarked on a series of high-profile projects and guest spots. By the time he recorded this 1964 release, the mood of the nation had changed radically with the assassination of JFK; the light-hearted parody that felt so effervescent in 1963 seemed a shade more superfluous in the shadows of 1964. In an effort to reconnect with his original audience, Sherman reintroduced the Jewish-rooted humor he'd largely abandoned over the course of several albums. His clever writing and ear for a tune were still sharp, but the record buying public wasn't as hungry for silliness as they'd been two years earlier. Stories of gluttony, in-laws, modern pharmaceuticals, subway conductors and Jewish Lotharios are still funny, but what was once party entertainment - Sherman having honed his act in impromptu performances at friends' homes - was now performance laden with expectations. There are many nice moments here, including the memorably anti-consumerist "The Twelve Gifts of Christmas," but five albums along, the change in national zeitgeist seems to have dimmed Sherman's fire. Collectors' Choice straight-up reissue includes new liner notes by Dr. Demento. 3-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings. [©2010 hyperbolium dot com]

I remember listening to this album as a
child. Alan Sherman was a very funny man!
Do yourself a favor and buy this album.

Not up to par with his earlier songs, and not .very funny.as a general matter. Not up to par with Alan Sherman's earlier work, and in general, not very funny. It was disappointing.
