From the Album Cover

Don Brockett and Barbara Mazziotti have been working as a musical comedy team for the past four years. While their love is the musical revue form, they have been known to do a conventional night club act in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and New York. When not performing, Miss Mazziotti is a schoolteacher.

As a writing team, Brockett (lyrics) and Joanne Pasquinelli (music) have written four original musicals, all of which were presented in Pittsburgh. They have been represented in two off-Broadway productions, "Fourth Avenue North" and "Talent 61," and have written special material for Broadway comedienne Kaye Ballard, the comedy team of Phil Ford and Mimi Hines and the fast rising young singing team Jack and Sally Jenkins.

Joe Negri, who is recognized as one of the country's finest young guitarist, is seen daily on KDKA-TV's (Pittsburgh) John Reed King Show along with bass player Jimmy DeJulio. Karl Hardman, president of Hardman Associates, Incorporated, is a regular performer on KDKA Radio's Cordic and Company show. His many voices and quick sense of humor have made him one of the most sought-after performers in radio. Gil Lazier and Judy Davis, the only legitimate singers hard on this record, have been the featured singers in all the Brockett-Pasquinelli revues.
