This volume contains much more than just The Chipmunks personae of Ross Bagdasarian (born Ross Dickran Bagdasarian, Jr. on October 25, 1949 in Fresno, California), but better known as David Seville. This WW II veteran and cousin of William Saroyan (he appeared in Saroyan's Broadway hit The Time of Your Life and co-wrote with him the Rosemary Clooney smash hit Come-On-A-My House) also had small roles in the films Stalag 17, The Proud And The Profane, The Greatest Show On Earth andViva Zapata! to name just a few). In Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window he plays the piano player/song writer seen in a window opposite that of Jimmy Stewart composing the song Lisa and appeared beside Hitchcock in his usual cameo which has Alfred repairing a clock in his apartment.

In 1956 he had his first charting single with The Trouble With Harry, inspired by the Hitchcock film of the same name, using the pseudonym Alfi And Harry (# 44 Billboard Pop Top 100 in Feb - Liberty 55008). Then, changing his name and billing to The Music Of David Seville he scored again with the instrumental Armen's Theme, named after his wife (# 42 Dec - Liberty 55041), followed by Gotta Get To Your House (# 77 Sept 1957 - Liberty 55079). These modest results were then dwarfed spring 1958 when The Witch Doctor roared to # 1 on both the Pop and R&B charts on Liberty 55132 with Seville singing in both his own voice interspersed with sped-up snippets for the voice of the Witch Doctor.

That success led to another novelty called The Bird On My Head which cracked the Top 40 at # 33 in July 1958 on Liberty 55140, unlike Little Brass Band which finished a disappointing # 78 in late August (Liberty 55153).
