The Return of Bert and I CD


The Return of Bert and I CD

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. 

Performed by Marshall Dodge and Robert Bryan and featuring 13 stories, The Return or Bert and I depicts Maine fishermen and woodsmen with dry, classic humor.
