Is this it? I got the info from
This record is by Johnny Standley. It was issued originally as a 78, with
the Little Bo Peep routine on side one, and Grandma's Lye Soap on side 2.
Happily, the record has been reissued on several comedy compilations, CD and
cassette. They can probably be found with a search of amazon.com or another
music site. (Be aware that the CD "Dr. Demento Gooses Mother Goose" contains
ONLY part 1 of this record.) Or try ebay.com. LPs, 45s, and even 78s show up
for auction there, and usually "It's In the Book" is offered on one format
or another, and usually under $10 is enough to win the bid.
