Be a Ventriloquist with Buffalo Bob Smith and Howdy Doody
I believe this album came with the Howdy Doody ventriloquist doll (pictured here with Buffalo Bob Smith). It's a bit deceptive in that you think you'll get lessons in ventriloquism with Buffalo Bob and Howdy. However, they're only heard in some old bits from their show. The bulk of the album is done by a man named Larry Marks, whose voice sounds familiar to me but I don't know where from. That being said, there actually is some very good information about learning ventriloquism here, all the way from doing different voices to learning how to get past some of the tougher consonants without moving your lips. So, as the cover says, "Hear it. Try it. And discover how easy ventriloquism can be."
NOTE: It was pointed out to me that Side 1 and Side 2 were exactly the same. I fixed that now.
