Jim Stafford, at times, has a voice similar to that of Hoyt Axton and Jerry Reed. Stafford, more than any of the other novelty/comedy acts, was more quirky than funny. the humor on this CD comes from his home-spun delivery and the only laugh-out-loud song for me is "You Can Call Me Clyde", with it's Roger Miller-type lyric "yeah, i'm standin' here naked with my clothes on and you can call me clyde"; while the others are quietly funny. his big hits, or the ones he's known for, are the first 3 and track 5. while Stafford never gets dead serious, there are three songs on here {7, 8, and 10} that would resemble serious/non-novelty performances. "Turn Loose of My Leg", track 4, is about a wild girl and the dignified and well-mannered guy who reminds her "i'm not that kind of man", which is hilarious because usually it's the WOMAN who uses a similar over-used line like that. "Wildwood Weed" was a Top-10 pop hit...the CD kicks off with my favorite, "Spiders and Snakes", sold a million copies for Stafford and it hit the pop Top-10 in '74. Stafford's commercial success was in 1974-1975 and then nothing charted for him until 1981 with "Cow Patti" {track 5} and then two more singles hit the country charts but by that time he didn't really need a singing career because he was well known on TV on several country music shows plus being a host on an animal program in 1980-1981...he later opened up his own theatre. This CD introduces everyone to Jim Stafford's comedy {with 3 serious songs thrown in} and you can judge for yourself if he's your kind of performer.

Jim Stafford is one of the most brilliant comedians and musicians out there, and this CD displays that talent perfectly. It is so great to see a comedian that can keep his material clean, yet funny. Buy this cd and you won't be disappointed.

I have searched everywhere for this CD and no one knew anything about this artist, I wish he had more music out there cause I would buy them all. I hope you enjoy him as much as my family has (past & present).

By john thomas on July 30, 2014
Format: Audio CD
Most of the first half of this cd are Jim Stafford's totally off the wall warped songs. I mean that in a good way. They are his hits. Spider's And Snakes, Wildwood Weed, My Girl Bill and a song that I truely love Cow Patti. The second half of the cd is actually more serious and ends with a very somber song I had not heard. The fight. The second half of the cd kind of bogs down. But no matter how many times I listen to the first half. It always puts a smile on my face.
