I wanted this for the "Hold Out Huns" Sketch... brilliant! Also on the CD is the Introduction to England of Tobacco. A gem of a short story about his Siamese cat. For me the only classic one missing is "The Driving Instructor" but I can live with that as "Defusing a Bomb" is there and so is "Friend with a Dog"

A great fan of Bob Newhart, it's been great to be able to down load his classic album.
His is a humour that doesn't age, it's stil as funny today as when he first recorded it.
If you have seen him some of his rare film roles, do yourself a favour and treat yourself to his recordings.

"Bob Newhart recreates the most hilarious moments from 'The Bob Newhart Show' " 30 May 2011
By Annie Van Auken - Published on Amazon.com
Mono copies of Bob Newhart's fourth WARNER BROS. comedy album, THE BUTTON-DOWN MIND ON TV (1962, W/WS 1467) are on that company's gray label, with stereo discs on the gold.

This LP documents Bob's first concert appearance after taping the final show of his self-titled NBC-TV variety series. For this performance recorded "live" at the Broadmoor Int'l Center in Colorado Springs, CO., Newhart selected some of the best routines he wrote for that program.

"SIDE" NOTES--

ONE -- 1.) A phone call from Sir Walter Raleigh (aka "Nutty Walt"), who's just bought 80 tons of tobacco leaves. / 2.) Getting his cat "fixed." / 3.) He tries talking a very nervous man through disarming a ticking torpedo.

TWO -- 1.) He's afraid of his friend Harry's monstrous watch dog. / 2.) Marketing a "fully-loaded" chariot, a bit inspired by his twice seeing William Wyler's BEN-HUR (1959). / 3.) Two German soldiers ordered to wait in a bunker in 1945, argue 17 years later about whether the war is over, and who won.

SIDE ONE
[6:02] Introducing Tobacco to Civilization
[2:04] The Siamese Cat
[7:02] Defusng a Bomb

SIDE TWO
[7:01] A Friend with a Dog
[5:24] General Chariot Corp.
[5:27] The Hold Out Huns

TOTAL TIME: 33:00

Good stuff from '62! 6 Dec 2009
By Steven Abercrombie - Published on Amazon.com

This CD is funny! Bob sets up a scene, then plays a single character reacting to all the other unseen characters. As usual, some characters are on the phone; ohters are talking to a friend or a comrade. There is a bit of the Madison Avenue advertising slant to some of the material that is still funny today. The only problem is that the entire CD is only a little over 30 minutes long. Bonus tracks would have been much appreciated!
Newhart is always worthwhile 20 Jan 2013

The world of accounting lost a great mind when Bob Newhart went into comedy. He has been consistently great throughout his career, and I have enjoyed his humor since the 50's. The final episode of Newhart on TV stands out as one of the greatest endings to a television series in history.

I bought this as as gift for my husband, who will listen once or twice and then pass it on... So paying regular retail prices makes no sense. Thanks for providing an affordable option for me!

Bob Newhart's unique humor remains rib-tickling funny over time.
