THE FUDGERIPPLE FOLLIES OR
NOBODY LIKES A SMART ASS
ORIGINAL CAST LP VOL 2
This classic satire that was very popular back in New Orleans in the 1960s can be yours for the taking! This great album is on the Spade label of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This musical satire is called, The Fudgeripple Follies or "Nobody Likes A Smart Ass" Volume II. The cast consists of Sam Adams, Butch Benit, Bill Holliday and Walter Perseveaux. This is sort of a "Beyond The Fringe" Lousisana-style! This lp is not very common and should prove to be a great addition to your world...So bid today!

 I allas thought dat was flowuhs on huh hat, but it was a space helmit!

 I think ya right. I remember flowers too. Maybe this is a later or earlier version. It ran for a long time--might'a changed over time.
