I remember first hearing portions of this back in 9th grade (1977). Our English teacher, an old gal even back then, thought we'd enjoy it.
We sure did. Andy is an absolute riot, playing the bewildered, curious country bumpkin trying to make sense of unfamiliar things such as American Football and Shakespeare. No wonder why he went on to have such a huge role in the early days of TV.

I hadn't heard this since I was but a youth and I wasn't ready to hear it when a local station played What It Was, Was Football on the radio while I tried to drive across Seattle in a rental car. If the essential element of comedy is truth, then Andy Griffith made one for the ages when he wrote this sketch. The Simple Soul trying to understand a game such as football and unashamedly relaying his thoughts is as pure and funny a story as I have ever heard... I wish he was still doing this kind of comedy today... I did actually manage to stay on the road...Barely.

Andy Griffith is my favorite comedian of all time. If you love to hear funny stories. Listen to the very first one where he talks about going to a football game he thinks everybody is out there kicking a pumpkin. And playing this funny game out on a cow pasture instead of a football field. Then at the end he says "the only way to win this game is to get from one end of the cow pasture to the other with that pumpkin without getting knocked down or stepping in something."

With all due respect to Andy Griffith as a storyteller, there are a couple of problems with this CD. First of all, it lacks the "No Time for Sergeants" song found on the old LP version. Next, the mix of the stories with the musical performances lacks a clear direction. Finally, the material is almost exactly duplicated on the AMERICAN ORIGINALS album. Capitol would be doing fans a favor by combining the two albums and including "No Time for Sergeants"--they would all fit on one disc, and savvy justaposition of tracks would make an entertaining hour.

This is one heck of a CD. Great for car trips and the like--I can listen to this over and over, and I just never get tired of hearing it. Buy this for Mayberry fans as well as for the uninitiated--this is stuff that pre-dates the classic TV series, but it recalls the gentle humor that was its hallmark. Great, great stuff, and for the whole family!

Format: Audio CD
I have the cassette version and I laugh so hard about the football story and Romeo & Juliet. I almost have the Football story dialogue memorized. This aspect of his career and Red Skelton's Gertrude & Heathcliff (the seagulls) are my absolute old time favorites. Both of them funny without being gross. My other favorite comedians are Bill Engvall and Jeff Foxworthy. I am putting the CD version on my wish list because I have a cassette version made for me, but my current vehicle only has a CD player. I used to have the original 45 & album (remember those?) but somehow in all the moves and a teenage daughter appropriating my record collection, my original records got lost. (Now I find that they are both quite valuable)

When I was a little girl, my dad played this on the record player. It was hilarious to me then and whenever I thought of it, I laughed! Today, the record probably lives in the attic of my parents house--and they no longer have a record player. Now that I am 50 years old, it has become a classic. I am enjoying sharing it with my family and friends who agree that it is of "classic comedy" status! The football story and Romeo and Juliet are my favorites!

We watched Andy when he first began to guest on various TV shows and thoroughly enjoyed his routines. Due to the fact that his body language and facial expressions were a large part of his humor we had to recall that aspect but listening to the CD made us laugh all over again.
