By Henry Gibson


This is another case of a comedian making an album that gets re-released after they get popular years later. Gibson, in case you don't recall, hit it big on "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In", best known for the funny poems he would recite. He does a lot of that here too, but I think here he seems more like a charming (if slightly odd) young country boy. It's still a pretty interesting album to listen to though. Hope you like it!

Here's the track list:
  1. How to Write a Poem
  2. The Alligator
  3. Why I Like Soap
  4. The Newspaper
  5. How to Skin a Polecat
  6. How Now, Calpurnia
  7. The Feather
  8. Here Today--Gone Tomorrow
  9. A Little Bit About Myself
  10. How to Take Care of the Plum Tree
  11. Happiness Can Be Yours for Little or No Money
  12. Reflections of New York: Broadway/I Fell Down the Subway
  13. The Coyote
  14. Two Functional Poems: A Birthday/The Wedding
  15. Education Is Important
  16. What Freedom Means to Me in 25 Words or Less
  17. Why I Like Poetry

He didn't have a kiddie show. This isn't a children's album.

I fixed both of these links, so they should be fine now. If you still have problems with them, let me know.

Thanks!
