Mac Davis: "Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me"

Released in 1972,
this was Mac Davis' third (3rd) studio LP.

Most reviewers agree that this album was Mac Davis'
"breakthrough" recording.

Interestingly, the Wikipedia article on this record
credits Mac Davis with "beatboxing."
I am not sure that term was in use in 1972,
since I believe it was coined in the 1980s
as a reference to human imitation of electronic drum sounds.
Nevertheless, it is an accurate description
of some of Mr. Davis' vocal stylings.
