    And Me...I'm Ed McMahon

    And Me...I'm Ed McMahon

    “The first time I heard that Ed was taking singing lessons I made a citizens arrest on his tonsils for assault with a deadly weapon.

    After listening to this album, however, I think I’m liable to be sued for false arrest. Ed can sing. And quite well, too.

    I’m certain you’ll find “And Me…I’m Ed McMahon” as delightful and as pleasant a surprise as I have” - Johnny Carson.

    This is the story of And Me…I’m Ed McMahon from 1967.
