"The only people it wasn't popular with were those who were frightened." Among those who were displeased with him for being open about his religious persuasion was the Jewish editor of Variety, who reprimanded Katz for "defiling" the legend of Davy Crockett when the bandleader's parody "Duvid Crockett" became a hit record. The LP has been autographed on the front cover by Mickey Katz with a fountain pen in brown......CONDITION OF VINYL,COVER AND AUTOGRAPH IS VG.
