As promised, here is the Rowan and Martin comedy LP, one of several, that Epic Records pressed shortly before Laugh-in took to the air. You got a taste earlier in the week, now hear the whole thing (actually there is a two second glitch at the very, very end, knocking out the last joke).

I might try and post this whole LP later in the week. For the time being, listen to a sample of Rowan & Martin's very funny Epic Records comedy album as it appeared on The Generation Exploitation Podcast #35. You can listen to the whole show, or surf through it to find the album. Here's the playlist so you know where everything is.
