5.0 out of 5 stars the other novelty artist March 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jim Stafford-King of Comedy June 14, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars totally off the wall 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.
