Ernie Kovacs - The Ernie Kovacs Album: Centennial Edition

Grammy-nominated The Ernie Kovacs Album, originally released in 1976, was one of the first times both old and new generations could experience Kovacs. It appeared well over a decade after his tragic death. It contained almost all the “greatest hits” of his classic television bits and characters (like Percy Dovetonsils, Pierre Ragout, and J. Walter Puppybreath, to name a few). In celebration of The Ernie Kovacs Centennial celebration, the release, for the first time, is available on CD and Digital. It includes six previously unissued bonus tracks taken from ABC Radio and Kovacs Unlimited.
