I guess this really dates me but I have that album lol. It's still funny - with the "pig skin" - you have to picture Andy really drawling that out.
He was also in a movie called "Onionhead" - sort of a No Time for Sergeants but in the Coast Guard. It was not as broadly comical and had a romantic subplot. It didn't do well critically but I thought Andy Griffith's performance, which was more low-key, was pretty good.
