Although Edd Byrnes was known primarily for his acting rather than singing abilities, that did not stop the teen idol and star of 77 Sunset Strip from having a few notable hit singles spawned from this disc.

To an earlier generation of television viewers, Edd Byrnes was more readily recognized and affectionately known as Kookie. The moniker stems from the nickname of a character he played, the hip Gerald Lloyd Kookson III, who was featured prominently on 77 Sunset Strip. The ABC network launched the detective series in 1958, and it ran through 1964. Byrnes capitalized on the program's success by releasing "Kookie, Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb."
