In this 1959 recording, Michael Flanders (1922-1975) and Donald Swann (1923-1994) perform three skits from their musical farrago, "At The Drop Of A Hat." This recording was made during a performance at the Fortune Theater in London. I created this video from the LP shown above, issued in 1960 on the Angel label, serial number 35797. The images in this video were taken from the LP and LP jacket; all notes on the reverse side of the jacket are included above.

1. A Song of the Weather

2. The Reluctant Cannibal (2:03)

3. Design for Living (6:00)

Flanders is famous for another 1959 recording -- Peter and the Wolf (Петя и волк) by Sergei Prokofiev -- generally considered the definitive narration:
