ALL I REMEMBER IS THAT WHEN HE SANG “MAMIE” HE BROUGHT EVERYONE TO THEIR FEET. I SHALL NEVER FORGET IT. AS I GREW MY ASTHMA CONDITION DISSIPATED AND I WAS ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH HIS ANTICS THROUGHOUT THE YEARS. BUT IT WONT BE THE MANY JOKES AND SLAPSTICK ROUTINES THAT I WILL CHERISH, IT WILL ALWAYS BE THAT CONCERT CIRCA 1955-
