Editorial Reviews

Ray Stevens' debut album was originally released in 1962 as 1,837 Seconds Of Humour and made a brief appearance on the US charts, peaking at #135. Nine years later the bulk of the album was re-released by Pickwick, although under a new title (Rock & Roll Show), minus two tracks (The Rockin' Boppin' Waltz and Further More) and with a new front cover. Overall the album gives a unique insight to the humourous style of Ray Stevens, which would later result in major hits such as The Streak.

Founded in 1950, PICKWICK Records' first success was with their CRICKET children's label. In 1957 they began issuing budget line LPs under several imprimaturs: DESIGN, GRAND PRIX, BRAVO, HAPPY TIME, etc. These were often soundalike waxings. In the early '60s, Lou Reed was a staff songwriter at PICKWICK. In later years the company's biggest sellers were the DE-LITE label's Kool & the Gang.

In their heyday, PICKWICK family albums had ten tracks (or less) and were mainly licensed reissues of major brand material.
Mono recordings were often rechanneled into fake stereo.

1,837 SECONDS OF HUMOR MG-20732 (mono) SG-60732 (stereo), released July of 1962.
The original album peaked at #135 on Billboard's 200 chart.
Missing from that set are two songs, "The Rockin' Boppin' Waltz" and "Further More," also the program has been shuffled.
Backing vocalists are the Merry Melody Singers.

"Jeremiah Peabody" (8/61) was Ray's first Top 40 single, peaking at #35 on Billboard's Hot 100.
"Ahab" (6/62) was a Hot 100 #5 and #9 on the R&B chart. It was his only Top 10 record until "Gitarzan" made #8 in 1969.

This album was originally out in the late 50's or early 60's. This re-issue also includes a couple of additional songs not on the original. If you are a Ray Stevens fan, this album is a must. If you haven't heard him before, give this album a try.
