More Bert and I

The iconic "Bert and I" stories were first created by Yale University students Marshall Dodge and Robert Bryan in the late 1950s and performed around campus. The two amateur storytellers soon recorded a short 10-inch album of 11 stories for friends and family, but ultimately pressed just a few hundred. However, growing popularity prompted them in 1958 to record and release the seminal commercial album of New England humor and storytelling—Bert and I . . .  And Other Stories from Down East. Featuring 19 stories, the album depicted Maine fishermen and woodsmen with dry, classic humor and set the tone of direction of the genre for decades.

 

In the early 1960s, the duo followed with More Bert and I, an album featuring 14 more stories, including the title track as well as “Tin Roof,” and “The Plane Ride."
