 This is a rather odd but fitfully amusing novelty record. The " A " side ," Like I love You " , consists of dialogue between a man and a woman when he dials a wrong telephone number. I understand that the female conversing with Edd Byrnes is neither Connie Stevens nor Joannie Sommers ; perhaps someone out there knows the identity of this person ? The flip side is a monologue by Edd Byrnes , describing in " kookie-talk " the luxurious interior of his apartment. The record sounds dated now , but it retains some curiosity value. It was a no.42 U.S.hit in the summer of 1959.

 I've just remembered.In Kookie-talk combing one's hair was 'raking the ear-to-ear carpeting.' I think I prefer Valspeak.

 That looks like a high-maintenance hairstyle.That quiff protrudes at least an inch.

 Discogs thinks it is Joanie Sommers.

 "Friend" was not Connie Stevens on this record, also was not Joanie Sommers who was on 3 of his other songs. Anybody know who the anonymous "friend" was?
