The First Family Record. A comedy album that poked fun at the Kennedys (also referred to as the “First Family”). Written and produced by Bob Booker, Earle Doud, and George Foster. Cadence Records issued the album in 1962. It sold more than 1 million copies per week for the first 6.5 weeks. In addition, it remained at #1 on the Billboard 200 for 12 weeks. Furthermore, The First Family album won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1963. Also, stand-up comedian Vaughn Meader, who performed the part of JFK, won an award for his impersonation. Jacqueline Kennedy didn’t appreciate the comedy when she heard it. However, JFK did find it amusing. Consequently, he purchased 100 copies to give as Christmas gifts. Both the album sleeve and the vinyl record are in excellent condition.
