Mickey Katz "Sing Along with Mickele"


(Capitol, 1962) The cover is a pretty funny parody of a "Sing Along with Mitch" LP, with Mickey, the Yiddish Weird Al, making a face funnier than Joel Grey's best Muppet Show sketch. But this is a non-parody album, with Mitch actually leading earnest sing-a-longs of Jewish classics, including such Passover hits as "Da-Yei-Nu." But I suppose if he had just made a funny face on the cover it would have been enough.
