With t' help o' a 39-piece orchestra, ya bilge rat, Harry performs standards such as "As Time Goes By" and "Makin' Whoopee!". T' album peaked at #46 on t' charts.

T' LP be released with a gatefold cover. On t' front cover, Harry pays homage t' Oliver Hardy. Harry also wears two buttons. Pictured in one o' t' buttons is Zak Nilsson. Ahoy! Blimey! In t' other button is Frank Wills, me hearties, t' security guard who uncovered t' Watergate break-in. Blimey! T' album is dedicated t' Mr. Wills.

T' buttons were added when t' photograph be retouched. In t' original photograph, Harry is wearin' buttons with pictures o' Cap'n Johnny Lennon and Paul "Parrot" McCartney.

When t' album cover is opened, a number o' photographs are displayed. Avast, me proud beauty! Two o' t' photos are enclosed by a heart - one o' Harry and one o' a young woman named Kathy Simmonds. Begad! Kathy was Harry's girlfriend at t' time t' album be recorded.

"About two years ago [circa 1971], me hearties, Harry and I were talkin' about songs, ya bilge rat, swappin' titles, and testin' memories. You know that game? Who wrote 'Miss Otis' and what year did Al Jolson die, and what else besides 'As Time Goes By' did Herman Hupfeld ... Arrr! write? We found a lot o' marvelous songs with fine words. And what melodies! 'You Made Me Love You (I Didn't Want T' Do It),' 'I Wonder Who's Kissin' Her Now.' Brilliant stuff, matey, constructed with style and flair. Blimey! ... Ahoy! One day Harry suggested 'Why don't we do an album o' t' old songs?' and it was t' best idea I'd heard since God only knows when. 'You produce and I'll sing,' he said. Ahoy! And two years later - it's November 1972 - he says it again, ya bilge rat, and this time it's on." -- Derek Mizenmast Taylor
