Album Cover Art Wednesday: I Am The President

Let me make one thing perfectly clear, bad election results can be good for satire. Impressionist David Frye mined comedy gold with his 1970 LP, I Am The President. Frye didn’t work blue so he couldn’t capture the true essence of Tricky Dick or LBJ but it’s a funny record.

The entire album can be found on Spotify. Here are a few YouTube clips including one of Frye on the Smothers Brothers a year before Nixon was elected.
