| ||Sam Ervin was another snake-in-the-grass politician who was nimbly able, for the most part, to escape capture for his every-day corrupt methods. Makes him rather run-of-the-mill. He was a major Democrat roadblock to Civil Rights legislation.|

| ||This is something of a curio - a spoken version with a distinctly homely backing. Quite why this was released in the UK I don't know - except maybe as a random stab at the novelty market. It was 1973, after all....|
I suspect any other copies around will be promos too. Who was Senator Sam? Apparently one of the men who helped bring down both McCarthy and Nixon, for which I suspect he'll be remembered longer.
