TJR says

I genuinely have no recollection as to how this LP came to be in my collection, but it stands as sure-fire proof that I never throw any record away. The George Mitchell Minstrels, led by Scottish singer, pianist and arranger George Mitchell, were created in 1957 for BBC Radio broadcasts. In 1958, the Minstrels, in red make-up which looked black on camera, transferred to television. Their show was an enormous hit, with a peak viewing audience of 16.5 million viewers in 1964. It won the Golden Rose of Montreux for Best TV Show in the World in 1961. What the hell was the matter with people back then? Quite apart from the casual racism, the trite offerings from these goons could hardly be any more unappealing.
