A superlative example of what was probably the first "concept album"

Comedy Classic

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Think of this as a musical comedy created for the ear only. Freberg, who spent his formative years in radio, knew how to paint pictures in the listener's mind's eye, and rather skewed pictures at that. Here he's assisted and abetted by a cast that includes Jesse White (the original Maytag repairman) and June Foray (the voice of Rocky the squirrel) with big, brassy orchestrations arranged and conducted by Billy May. There's even a tap dancing credit! As for the comedy, it's hard to pick a favorite, though I'm partial to Tom Jefferson trying to convice Ben Franklin to "sign on the dotted line". Historically accurate, this album is not; hysterically accurate, absolutely."
