The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart is a 1960 live album by comedian Bob Newhart. Recorded at the Tidelands Club in Houston, Texas, the debut album by Newhart was number one on the Billboard pop album chart and won Album of the Year at the 1961 Grammy Awards, where Newhart was named Best New Artist. It was the first comedy album to win Album of the Year and the only time a comedian had won Best New Artist.

Newhart wanted the title to be The Most Celebrated New Comedian Since Attila the Hun, but Warner Bros. executives created the album's title and Newhart had to settle for his idea as a subtitle.[3]

The album was a 2006 entry into the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry. According to an NPR interview with Newhart, it is the 20th-best-selling of all time on Billboard's charts.[citation needed]

In popular culture

The album that Pete Campbell listens to in Mad Men Season 1, Episode 4, "New Amsterdam".

In the pilot episode of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Joel Maisel performs routines from the album at a cafe, passing them off as his own work. This is anachronistic, as the episode is set in 1958, two years before the album was released.
