I saw her do Sara Lee" on, I think, The Tonight Show(She was a favorite of Johnny Carson). Also a stitch of a song called Ann-Dash_Mar-gar-ret......... Back in the day when there were LP bins everywhere, I went with my father to a Hardware Store, and flipping thru the record bins, I came across an LP(on United Artists records), entitled "Boo-Hoo; Ha Ha. On side one Miss Ballard sang torch songs' .Side two comedy songs, some by Fred Ebb(What's a nice kid like you doin in a place like this"- Side two was a perfect example of "Special Material'...... On the cast album of Cole Porter revisited(It was an off=Bway revue) She did imitations of Sophie tucker and Mabel Mercer-In fact I heard Ballard's imitation of Miss Mercer before I even bought a Mabel Mercer album. ..... Three cheers for Kaye Ballard!
