Bereik en inhoud

This collection consists of records released during the period of the late 1950s-early 1970s. All records contained in the collection are housed in their original sleeves. A number of the records were produced, written, and directed by the duo George Foster and Bob Booker, who specialized in albums which featured scripted routines performed in the studio by a handful of voice actors. Other highlights include comedy albums of live performances by comedians Allan Sherman, Rusty Warren and Woody Woodbury.
