Album Review

Since most of MCA's 20th Century Masters: Millennium Edition has been devoted to musicians, it's a little strange to see it applied to a comedian, yet the same principle works very well on Bill Cosby's collection. This covers his early-'70s records for MCA, a time when he was deep into Fat Albert — who indeed appears here with "Fat Albert's Car." Truth be told, this material isn't as classic as what appeared on the early-'60s albums on Warner, but it's pretty damn great all the same, and while it doesn't have the flow of a real comedy record (and is admittedly missing some great bits), it does have most of the major cuts he made during this time, and is a successful sampler. If you just want a taste of Cosby's early-'70s recordings, this is a good choice.

Cosby doing what he does best.

Very Good

uhmm

this is a pretty good album but iw ould only buy a couple of them.

This is an excellent comedy album and I would reccomend it to anyone looking for some good laughs.

Before Cosby, black comics were largely relegated to the so-called "chitlin circuit" of black nightclubs and theaters, their albums banned from white-owned record stores; after Cosby, comedians of all racial and cultural backgrounds found a home in the mainstream, and were...
