Fat Albert

LP (Item 46060) MCA, 1973 — Condition: Very Good

A classic live set from Bill Cosby – recorded at Harrah's Hotel in Reno, Nevada – back in 1973, when he was still pretty darn hip! As you'd guess from the title and cover, the emphasis here is on stories and bits involving Fat Albert – the Cosby creation that was then playing big time in cartoon format on Saturday morning TV! The routines are actually a heck of a lot better than the cartoon – and titles include "Fat Albert's Car", "Fat Albert Plays Dead", "Fat Albert Got A Hernia", "My Wife & Kids", "My Dad's Car", "My Brother, Russell", and "Fernet Branca".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
