    Producer: Jimmy Hilliard. Compilation producer: Bill Inglot. Includes liner notes by Steve Allen. Personnel: Allan Sherman (vocals). Liner Note Author: Steve Allen. An unlikely star who, according to legend, got his recording contract strictly through being at the right party at the right time, Allan Sherman crafted musical parodies that were, in some ways, a musical equivalent to Charles Schulz's PEANUTS. Like that revered comic strip, the genial surface goofiness of Sherman's ditties barely masked the fashionable neuroses of its era (the 1960s) underneath. For example, "Crazy Downtown" inverts the premise of Petula Clark's soaring original by taking on the hysterical voice of Petula's parents, worried sick about what their daughter is getting up to in a dangerous part of town during the wee hours of the morning. Beyond his reliance on generation gaps and Jewish humor, Sherman was a genuinely clever songwriter who was able to wring laughs from the most unexpected juxtapositions. Unlike some comedians from the same period, more importantly, Sherman presented humor that dated remarkably well, being more concerned with personal foibles than topical events. MY SON, THE GREATEST: THE BEST OF ALLAN SHERMAN is an excellent introduction, especially for those who only know "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh."

    • Alan Sherman - My Son, the Greatest
      Verified Purchase

      This CD includes many of Alan Sherman's hits ~ the best know is "Hello Mudda, Hello Fadda" and is a fictional letter written home from camp. Music fans will recognize many of the tunes and be amused by the words that Sherman has put to the tunes. Highly recommended as musical comedy.
