Danny Kaye is probably unknown to many who are under 45 or so. He was an old school entertainer---could sing, dance, act, tell jokes, etc.---which is a lost art. Chris Walken is probably one of the few still performing that can do it all--for him, from tap to "more cowbell".
Anyhoo, when I was a lad, I listened to this album. A lot. And once the wonders of the Inter-Web-Nets began making searching for such a record (LP, not CD) viable, I did so, and I found it, and bought it. This is a very adept telling of some classic stories. Highly recommended for anyone who appreciates what I just wrote.
