Cheech & Chong —
Wedding Album ... CD CollectorsChoice, 1974. Used ....
$9.99Temporarily Out Of Stock
Cheech & Chong return with their Wedding Album – which features their all time great, never to be topped glam metal parody "Earache, My Eye" (Cheech as Alice Bowie) – a tune all the more hilarious given the big, gaudy Lou Adler production! That 5 1/2 minute midsection darn nearly overshadows the rest of the album, but the 70s top popular counterculture comedy duo still brings the goods on skits like "Championship Wrestling", "Wake Up America", "Black Lassie (A Great American Dog)", "Coming Attractions", "Three Little Pigs" and more. CD
Nothing psychedelic here, but in our book Redd Foxx is always a trip! The set's a classic batch of live material cut for the Loma label – with Redd very much in his own element, performing before a very well-lubricated audience at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas! The album's a lot funnier than any of his work on TV – a side of Foxx that we love to hear – and Redd's approach here is a masterfully witty one, filled with complicated word play you might not expect if you've only ever seen him clutching his heart and screaming about "the big one"! CD
Years before Redd Foxx broke onto the TV mainstream in the 70s, he was already drawing big crowds in Vegas – thanks to wonderfully strong material like you'll hear on this CD! Foxx's presentation here is wonderful – careful enough on topics to reach a crossover audience, but also down to earth too – crossing the tracks with bits of wit and wisdom, all delivered with impeccable timing. The subject matter gets a bit off-color at times, but Redd has a beautiful talent for keeping things clean, even when hinting at the dirty – and it's this balance that really makes the record wonderful – enough care for his choice of words to bring some class to his act, and really set him apart from some simple bawdy comedian.
