The first time I saw this 1965 LP it was in the hands of a stranger who'd just purchased it at a garage sale. I was rather shocked at its title. A couple years later I found my own copy and with closer inspection it became obvious that it was merely the tongue-in-cheek title of a satirical comedy LP. Part of me was relieved and part of me was disappointed.
John Barbour was a Canadian comedian that moved to America in the early sixties. The crux of his act, on this album at least, dealt with civil rights issues. His liberal stance endeared him to African-American comics like Dick Gregory and Redd Foxx and both considered him a good friend.

I wrote a bit more about Barbour and the album here. Listen to the curio in its entirety:
