4.0 out of 5 stars On front cover: "Congratulations! This is Your Gift Album!", April 18, 2010
This review is from: The Kings Of Comedy: A Rare Cavalcade Of Timeless Entertainment Starring Over 40 Comedy Greats at Their Uproarious Best / Narrated By George Burns [Vinyl LP] (Vinyl)
A freebie from Longines Symphonette. Imagine that.

This monaural LP is hosted by George Burns. Side One has dozens of sound bites of famous stand-up, TV, radio comics and vaudevillians that includes a few then-recent clips. The flip features 4 tracks also heard on Evolution's two LP set, THE GOLDEN AGE OF COMEDY Vol. 1. These are augmented by a Will Rogers broadcast disc and a pre-electric Jolie side.
