AllMusic Review by

Homer & Jethro were nearing the end of a partnership that lasted almost 40 years at the time of this 1968 performance at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. Their unique brand of corny musical comedy, complete with lively banter between numbers was a hit with audience. In addition to howlers like "She Was Bitten on the Udder by an Adder" and "The Great Society," they also show off their considerable instrumental chops with "Turkish March and Cumana" and even Fats Waller's "The Jitterbug Waltz." Their supporting musicians include guitarist Jerry Reed, who would break through in just a few years with a few humorous hits of his own, along with Hank Wallis and Jerry Carragan. Long out of print, this RCA Victor LP will be difficult to acquire.
