Evolution / Revolution: The Early Years (2CD)
4.3 out of 5 stars with 57 reviews
Before he was doubling over audience members with profanity-laced sketches and stories, thus igniting a comic revolution, Richard Pryor was a young joke man struggling with his identity. In the late 1960s and early 1970s Pryor transformed himself from a nonthreatening, middlebrow comic to a controversial, X-rated sensation, and in turn forever transformed the landscape of comedy in the process. For the first time, those contrasting worlds have been brought together on Evolution/Revolution: Early
Richard Pryor: ...And It's Deep Too! The Complete Warner Bros. Recordings (1968-1992)

One can't help but feel both elated and sad when listening to this colossal overview of Richard Pryor's recorded work. Multiple sclerosis has silenced the greatest humorist of his generation, and that's tragic for Pryor. But it's also a heartbreaking loss for comedy, for, as these discs amply illustrate, the man who exploded the parameters of stage comedy in the '70s could have taken it in wild new directions. As it was, Pryor fleshed out Lenny Bruce's commitment to brutal honesty--and with a ke

Hooty-hoo, M & B listeners! The new highlights CD of their radio program is out, and it's a riot! Comedy highlights include the tiny, karate-chopping Elvis impersonator, Listener Frank's singing seals, and King Moonraiser ''floofing'' around the studio. And don't tell the guys I told you, but be sure to let the CD play out for a hidden holiday track. The musical moments are just as entertaining, including an impressive performance by listener Pamela Holt with Barry Manilow, and a tribute to ''It
On the Loose: Recorded Live

Subtitled Recorded Live...Where It s At, this 1967 album captures Foxx in his natural environment, raunchy n ribald in front of a loud n loose crowd. One of our favorite G-rated lines comes when Redd describes how his dad used to get out of buying gifts on Christmas by going out to the back of the house and firing a gun, then running into the house and yelling that somebody shot Santa Claus. But you ll find your own...

Hully Gully Fever [Vinyl]

Before Rudy Ray Moore became famous as Dolomite, he spent years trying to make it as an R&B singer. Hully Gully Fever collects the fruits of his labor. These 28 tracks date from the '50s and '60s and include singles, unreleased masters, radio spots, and live tracks. The earliest tracks are jump blues-influenced, but soon Moore is playing rock & roll. He also tries the blues and a couple of tracks sound like early soul music. Moore is a passable singer, getting by on energy more than skill. The b

Unprotected is the third album from no-holds-barred comedian Robert Schimmel. The live-album version of his November HBO special of the same name, Unprotected features new material as well as new performances of the funniest, raunchiest, bust-your-gut routines from his 1997 debut album, Robert Schimmel Comes Clean, and 1998's If You Buy This CD, I Can Get This Car. Often compared to George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Lenny Bruce and Redd Foxx, Schimmel is on the verge of major stardom.
