Description

Digitally remastered edition. In 1951 Allan Sherman recorded a single with Sylvia Froos, a parody of 'A Bushel And a Peck' from Guys And Dolls. The single did little, but Allan enjoyed creating parodies and would often drop them into the proceedings when he was with friends or family. One such fan of the parodies was Harpo Marx, who regularly invited Allan round to his parties to entertain the guests. One such guest was George Burns, who was equally impressed and called Warner Brothers and persuaded them to sign Allan to a recording contract. The first such fruits were MY SON, THE FOLK SINGER, a nine track album (briefly released with ten tracks, until it was discovered one of the songs parodied was still in copyright) featuring well known songs such as 'Greensleeves' and 'Matilda' given a distinctive Jewish flavor when they became 'Sir Greenbaum's Madrigal' and 'My Zelda' respectively. The album proved a major success, topping the US album chart and becoming one the quickest selling albums of the time on it's way to a million plus sales.
