The First Family is a comedy album recorded on October 22, 1962, as a good-natured parody of President John F. Kennedy, both as Commander-in-Chief and as a member of a large, well-known political family. Issued by Cadence Records, it was honored as the "largest and fastest selling record in the history of the record industry" selling at more than a million copies per week for the first six and one-half weeks in distribution, by January it had sold more than 7 million copies. Cadence president Archie Bleyer credited the album's success to radio airplay. By time of the release of The First Family - Volume Two, the sequel, it had sold 7.5 million copies — unprecedented for any album at the time, let alone a comedy album.

dbo:abstract
  • The First Family ist ein US-amerikanisches Comedy-Album von Vaughn Meader aus dem Jahr 1962. Es parodierte in kurzen Szenen von knapp drei Minuten das Leben der Präsidentenfamilie um John F. Kennedy. Der Comedian und Stimmenimitator Vaughn Meader konzipierte das Album und sprach darauf die Entsprechung zu John F. Kennedy. Ein Sequel des Grammy-prämierten Werks, das auch Musikstücke beinhaltete, wurde nach der Ermordung Kennedys vom Markt genommen, wie auch das Album selbst, welches dann jahrzehntelang nicht mehr auf dem Markt erhältlich war. Inzwischen existiert eine CD- und eine MP3-Version. (de)
