referencing Child Of The Fifties, LP, 6001

Robert Klein was at his comedic peak with the release of this album. For anyone who lived through the fifties and sixties, these comic bits are hysterical. There's real genius in short bits like 'Starting Your Car'...his fond memories of 'My Little Margie' and 'Our Gang' are spot on. Klein, like Rodney Dangerfield, like Albert Brooks and Steve Martin, were at their best and funniest when they were doing stand-up. This ranks right up there with George Carlin's 'FM and AM' and Woody Allen's Colpix lp.
