Vicki Lawrence had two other records make the Top 100; "He Did With Me" ( in 1973) and "The Other Woman" ( in 1975). Ms. Lawrence, born Victoria Ann Axelrad, celebrated her 65th birthday two months ago on March 26th, 1949.

Vicki Lawrence has had a much bigger singing career than most people realize. Vicki started recording in mid 1969. Her first single was "And I'll Go" b/w "The Whole State of Alabama" on Elf Records, which was marketed by BELL Records. The single was issued in summer of 1969 and it received moderate air-play. The "A" side made it to the charts, but not for long and unfortunately was not able to reach a very high position. What it did do, was prove that Vicki Lawrence could sing and could chart a single.

Her relatively brief résumé as a series regular is perhaps the result of her early Hollywood success. At the age of 18, she was handpicked by Carol Burnett to join the cast of Burnett’s eponymous CBS sketch comedy, in part because of how much alike the two looked. I started in the Emerald City, Lawrence laughs. You hear actors all the time talk about all the shit you have to go through to become a star. I’ll miss the traffic going and I’ll miss the traffic coming. I had to go finish the album with a gun to my head. It was like, You have to do this, or I’m gonna sue you. That was not fun.
