Editorial Reviews

Harrison is a one man sound effects machine that worked for the biggest studios in the 1950's and 60's. For example, the sound effects for the popular Tom and Jerry cartoons were Harrison "doing his thing!" The cannon fire in "Peter Pan" was Harrison "shooting his mouth off." In "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea", the gurgling water and the baby seal sounds were from Harrison. Here is the solo comedy album from a man with talent ad infinitum that appeals to people of all ages.

I grew up with this album in the early 70s (I believe it's from the early 60s). No idea where it came from but I played it over and over until the vinyl was pretty much unplayable. I've always wanted to find another copy of it and am excited to see it's now on CD.

Yes, even back then the jokes were a bit tired (as mentioned by another reviewer) but material that would receive total silence at the hands of another performer can get you laughing hysterically when combined with the amazing sound effects. This guy will blow your mind.

In the late 70s, I saw him perform at Wisconsin Dells - where I believe he still performs. Though the routines were exactly the same as on the record from almost 2 decades earlier, they were still funny. I do know he still tours the country, and his website (do a search for "Mr. Sound Effects") has his schedule along with some other information.

Definitely worth the purchase.

I saw Wes Harrison live in the late 1960's at our local street fair where there was nightly live entertainment on the court house square. My dad bought an album and 45. The 45 has long since been lost but I still have the album, though like the others, has been played until its worn out. I was tickled to death that I found this album on disk here on Amazon and had to order it right away. I saw Wes again in mid 1990 at a Sports Vacation Boat Show. He was just as entertaining then as he was when I first saw him. I read where he went on to work for Disney doing sound effects for some of their animated movies. Thank you Amazon for having such a treasure and bringing back such fond memories.

There is absolutely no one on the planet like Wes Harrison. The special effects sounds he does are so realistic, you will find yourself looking around the room for the train, the duck, and all the other items whose sounds he mimics with just his mouth, throat and Shure mike. This is an absolute must own CD, you won't believe your ears, and if you see him in person, your eyes either!

I grew up listening to this album. My father would carefully remove it from it's cover and play it a couple times a year. I remember my sister and I begging him to play it "again, Daddy, again!". And each time it was just as amazing and funny as the first time we heard it.
My father still has that same album tucked away in his cabinet and I always wanted one of my own. Finding it on CD format was a huge excitement, and I'm going to enjoy listening to it until it won't play anymore!
The jokes are dated, yes, but the sound effects will leave you amazed and craving more. The sounds that this man can do are unbelievable and astounding. I'm just sad I was never able to hear/see him in person, and that he never made another album. If you pass this cd by, you'll be missing out on this talented man's vocal tricks!

Back in the 60's I bought this on 33 1/3 record; I was surprised and relieved to find it still available; my mom wanted one to share with her friends...she's 95! She's loaned it out once so far, and has a few others she thinks will enjoy this humor. It IS funny, and proves that you don't have to use profanity or sexual slurs to be so. I recommend this to anyone who appreciates real talent (with a little electronic assistance), and good clean fun. Disclaimer: it's doubtful that a person could do what Wes did without legal repercussions, in our present society of hypersensitive, lawsuit-manic mentality! Ahhh, "the good ol' days".

The disc arrived after being on order for about three weeks and was well packaged for shipment. I had Mr. Harrison's vocal antics while I was serving aboard the USS Forrestal in the mid-1970's and I had always hoped to be able obtain at least one example of his wonderful, funny vocal act. This CD helped me achieve that goal in one fell swoop. Some of my friends are convinced that I'm absolutely crazy from listening to Mr. Harrison and Cheech & Chong, but I simply tell them that if it gives me a good belly laugh, then why worry about it? Thanks again Amazon.

I saw Wes Harrison in person in Wisonsin Dells, WI. at the Tommy Bartlet Water Ski Show almost 20 years ago. He was tremendously funny to watch and listen too. I've never heard anything like this sound effects comedy before and it deserves a 5 star rating for sure.
I bought a couple autographed albums and tapes at the show and didn't realize it was re-recorded on a cd.
This is a MUST have CD for any personal or group listening!!!
This comedy cd is good for ALL AGES....

I first heard Wes about 40 yrs ago when a friend had bought the album. We used to go up to his room after school and listen to it for hours on end. Wes was a man before his time. His sound effects are so real it is simply amazing. Michael Winslow (Police Academy) is good , but Wes blows him away. I couldn't believe I remembered his last name so I could do a search to find this. Thanks Amazon. I can"t wait to here this again with today"s sound technology.
