Jim Stafford

Jim Stafford (born 16 January 1944 in Eloise, Florida) was a comedian and musician in the 1970s and had a couple of semi-novelty hits with three songs, Spiders and Snakes, Wildwood Weed and the controversial My Girl, Bill. He continues to work as a comedian in Branson, Missouri performing at the Jim Stafford Theater.

Jim Stafford's self-titled debut album gave him four Top 40 chart singles, with the schoolboyish charm of "Spiders and Snakes" reaching the highest at number three in July of 1973. His friendly voice and novelty style of songwriting actually carried some well-deserved weight, especially throughout the lesson-teaching lightheartedness of "Swamp Witch," a well-crafted story song, and again on the laughable "My Girl Bill." "Wildwood Weed" sticks with Stafford's love of playing with words, and non-hits like "I Ain't Sharin' Sharon" and "16 Little Red Noses and a Horse That Sweats" carry on with the same type of innocent jocularity that ran amuck throughout the mid-'70s, bolstered by artists like Ray Stevens and CW McCall. Either this album or any of his hits packages will satisfy any interest. ~ Mike DeGagne, All Music Guide
