SummaryEdit

A record promoter arrives in Mayberry, intent on making a recording of the region's local folk music, but Andy becomes wary of the stranger and suspects he might be a con artist seeking some fast cash.

PlotEdit

Despite a lesson from Andy on the dangers of investing one's money, Barney and some of the other towns folks convince Mr. Maxwell, a record producer in town to record some of the local folk music for an album he's making, to let them invest in his record company. He reluctantly agrees, and everyone is convinced they'll see a quick and profitable turn on their investments. Andy, however, is quite suspicious of Mr. Maxwell and tries to convince Barney that he's made a terrible mistake and is being swindled. When it appears that Mr. Maxwell has skipped out of the town with their money, it appears that Andy is right. Ellie manages to keep a cool head, explaining that Mr. Maxwell has done nothing out of the ordinary. As Barney, Andy, Floyd and the others are preparing to go after Mr. Maxwell, he returns. Not only is he back, but he sold the album for more than he expected and has already turned a nice little profit for the investors. He owes all his (and his investors) success to Andy for alertimg him to all of Mayberry's talent.
