Tom Lehrer's 1953 debut album, Songs by Tom Lehrer, was a cheaply recorded (though the sound is reasonable) studio set in which the singing comedian accompanies himself on piano. In general, Lehrer's work has dated so that it sounds a bit fey and quaint in the light of bolder subsequent comedians (musical and otherwise). In addition, Lehrer would re-record all of these songs (and more than once), and the live versions on 1960s Tom Lehrer Revisited are less inhibited. Then the album was re-recorded, yet again, in the mid-'60s for Reprise in stereo, with a few minor lyric changes (. changing "reefers" to the more contemporary slang of "pot"); Lehrer later said he regretted the decision to do the stereo re-recording.
