The Smothers Brothers Show - The Smothers Brothers Play It Straight - Netflix

The Smothers Brothers Play It Straight was the ninth album by the Smothers Brothers (released February 15, 1966 on Mercury Records). As the title indicates, the folk comedy duo were singing the songs “straight” (well, “Almost”). Like the B-side of their second album, Two Sides of the Smothers Brothers, the recording was done in a studio instead of on stage. The album cover shows Tom standing with his guitar and Dick sitting on a stool with his bass lying behind him. There is also a chicken eating chicken-feed, which could be a representation of Frank, Tom's wagon pulling chicken who is discussed on Mom Always Liked You Best!.
