Seems even more appropriate now with the recent death of Don Adams. I LOVED Baker's parody of Maxwell Smart in his self-written "Would You Believe It" which hit the WLS Chicago survey in 1966. When it was out, I thought it was really cool and still do. A few years ago, someone mentioned Baker's website and I emailed Baker about the song and he thanked me for remembering it. You probably need to like novelty songs for this to be a fave, but I DO! BTW, Don Adams' "Meet the Roving Reporter" is a fun Lp also, done in Maxwell Smart attitude and voice.
