CD Reviews

Laugh and Laugh Again with Sherman!
Edward J Vasicek | Kokomo, IN USA | 11/01/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is hilarious. You never know when Sherman is going to surprise you with his unexpected lyrics. His "almost" Sinatra voice, the Jewish flavor of some of his humor, and his understanding of the lighter side of human nature made him a great comedian in his day, and this CD does a great job of capturing his comical expertise.Some of the songs are funnier than others. I have always loved his big hits, "Hello Muddah," "The Twelve Days of Christmas,"
and "Louis the 16th," but some of the medleys are hilarious.
He surprises you with hilarity. Our whole family enjoys the CD.
Once in a while, I'll surprise my wife by putting it in our van's CD player; as soon as she hears Sherman's voice, she begins to laugh. Great fun, especially for those of us who are already a tad crazy."
The great hits of a comic genius

"For those who don't know the original "Wierd Al," Allan Sherman, or know him only as the man who wrote "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh," this CD is a revelation and a true tribute to a comic genius. Unlike his discovery, Bill Cosby, Allan Sherman is all but forgotten by everyone except his many diehard fans. And that's a shame, for, in his own way, his was as great a talent as Cosby's. And, on a personal note, whenever I want a good laugh, this CD gets me going every time. Yes, "Hello Muddah" is here, as it should be. But so is "Sarah Jackman" (supposedly a favorite of JFK), "Lotsa Luck," "Al 'n' Yetta," "Good Advice," "Crazy Downtown," and "Schticks of One and a Half Dozen of the Other," all of them comic gems. Steve Allan's liner notes are merely the icing on the cake. In short, this is a funny tribute to a very funny man who left us too soon. Camp Grenada forever!"
Our teen son likes this better than "Weird Al"
Volkert Volkersz | Snohomish, WA United States | 03/20/2001

"I checked this out of the library for our son when he was about 10 years old. He has always preferred listening to audio books and comedy, more than music (which was--and is--our daughter's thing). After one listen, he was hooked, and it seemed like he was constantly going back to the library to check Allan Sherman out--over and over again.Needless to say, we eventually got him his own copy as a gift. He is now in his mid-teens, and it's still one of his favorite recordings. Even though he enjoys hearing "Weird Al" on the radio, he's never begged or saved to get any of his recordings. It's "Hello, Muddah, Hello, Faddah!" for this kid.In this day when it seems hard to find good, clean humor, we tend to lean toward those favorites we can count on. (Our son just bought his first Bill Cosby recording--also from the 60s--on CD!)Of course, my wife and I, who grew up in the 60s, are loving it. We all enjoy singing these hilarious parodies at the top of our lungs. We're just wondering what's going to happen when our son gets his driver's licence and asks to take the family car "Downtown!""
