The Two Sides of the Smothers Brothers (released September 1, 1962 on Mercury Records) was the second comedy album by the Smothers Brothers. Side A (tracks 1-6) consisted of comedy and was recorded at The Crystal Palace in St. Louis during a live performance. Side B (tracks 7-12) was recorded at the Bell Sound Studio in New York City with a full orchestra and represented the singing side of the boys. It reached number 26 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart.
According to the liner notes to their compilation album Sibling Revelry: The Best of the Smothers Brothers, The Two Sides of the Smothers Brothers was their best selling album of their career. It spent sixty-six weeks on the Billboard album chart, and peaked at #26.
According to the book Dangerously Funny, the album dedicated one side to straight music because the duo hadn't yet developed enough new comedy material after having put the entirety of their original act on their first album
