 The Decca catalogue confirms 1968 and gives the month as December.

 I only have to hear the name Hoffnung and my mind echoes with what always sounded like port-laden, imperious tones announcing: "I was now heavier than the barrel !".

 If you look at the back cover, the year of release is given as 1968 - something which the boxed logo Decca labels also confirm. The copyright date of 1960 must refer to first release on LP.

 I do too, a brilliant LP, on a par with Shelley Berman's LPs, comic genius

 And here is The Bricklayer.

 Sadly I can't find a version of The Bricklayer in full on the web. It is a very funny story delivered by Hoffnung, a pure genius raconteur. This brings back huge memories of my father and life as a child in the early 60s. This was Father's party piece - he could recite it in a similar manner to Hoffnung.
