STEVE ALLEN´S FUNNY FONE CALLS

EXCERPTS TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM THE NATION´S TOP TV PROGRAM!
With GUEST CELEBRITIES

When Serge Kouraibaseff invented the Bolnevski in 1631 - as chronicled so brilliantly in the MGM ( Moscow Group Movement) motion picture "The Teenage Troika That Ate Downtown Minskj´ starring Raymond Massive as Abe; Mickey Rooney as Young Tom Edisoff and Eva Marie Saint as Petersburg - he (Serge, I mean, if you´ve forgotten how this paragraph started-or even if you haven´t, for that matter) doubtlessly never intended for it (the Bolnevski, I mean, if you´ve etc. - or even if you haven´t etcetraed, for that matter) to be treated with the flagrant disrespect that Steve Alien has shown it on the album you´re about to hear (or that you´ve already heard, if you´re one of them finks who listens to a record first and then looks at the liner notes later to find out if that really was Fred MacMurray on tenor with Bix and "The Mound City Blue Blowers" led by Duke Ellington who was using the nom-de-baton of "Ornette Hucko" at the time on account of a contractual hangup with Columbia-and go stick all that background information in your hat and smoke it, Mister Wise Guy Leonard Feather, hah!).
(Ed. Note: The American "Album Cover-Back First-Sentence Length" record was previously held by Harold Francis Uplinger of Dead, North Dakota, who also once ran the hundred in 14.6.)

Oh! Incidentally, Serge Kouraibaseff´s heirs, represented by Serge Kouraibaseff XIV, have become terribly depressed over Mr. Alien´s blatant misuse of their ancestor´s audio-listening device; so depressed, in fact, that they´ve instituted civil proceedings against Mr. Alien in the soon-to-be historical court action already known as "the blue Serge suit."

This is a funny album! Perhaps not as funny as these liner notes, but, reasonably humorous, nonetheless - all things considered. The horrible thought is that it might not have been any album at all had Steve not been suddenly stuck for something to do one evening a few months ago on his nationally-syndicated TV show. Moving with the rapidity of a wounded asp, he turned to the Classified Ads section of a local newspaper, called a number at random and the rest - as they say in theatrical circles - is... is... is... (Doggone it! I had it right on the tip of my tongue.)... (Oh yeah!... "Saliva"!).

The Allen "Telephone Bit" became the piece-de-resistance of a program loaded with great guests, receptively active studio audience and irresistible unpredictability. (How about words like those, David Susskind, you big smart aleck!)
And it wasn´t long before hordes of Hollywood celebrities were clamoring to assist Steve in placing his nightly calls.
Which indeed they did, as witness by merely dipping your needle in the groove.
