David Frye’s Richard Nixon: A Fantasy – The Best Political Satire of the 20th Century

Maybe you had to be there – 1973, Watergate, five year of Tricky Dicky in the White House. It was stupefyingly horrendous and majestically comic. A droll joke played on the entire world as the President of the Unite States oversaw a second rate political break in. David Fyre, who was the most brilliant impressionist/comic of his day, had Nixon down cold. In 1973, he teamed with writers who included Gabriel Kaplan in his pre-Welcome Back Kotter days, to produce this brilliant album. It was iconic in its time, a must listen for the hip and the hip wannabes.
