At leat one of his concerts is on Video Tape. It might be available, at a later date, on DVD. I have this one and have found it absolutely hysterical. Great stuff!

i think his funniest is 'wonderfulness'. great stories.. also highly recommended are 'revenge', and 'to russell, my brother, whom i slept with'.. to be honest, they will all get you rollin.

if you have never heard any of this early stuff, go get some quick.. most of his comedy albums were recorded between 1965 and 1970.. i think 'himself' was his last album, and it came out in the early 80's. i have 4 of his records(yes vinyl), and i love every one.

I guess I feel like a criminal. In a earlier post I was talking about shooting "LP's" with a bow. Is that the wrong terminology for "vinyl"? Either way, we built a ramp that was actually a wedge and I would have a friend roll the records down the ramp and we would shoot them. MMmmm...what a southern boy does for enjoyment...pity

No, LP is correct when referring to a vinyl album. Though "album" is also correct, it is really a misnomer when referring to a 33 and 3/3 LP record. Do you know what LP stands (stood) for? No "OLD" guys get to answer, just the young whippersnappers )

The term Album started back in the days of 78RPM records. At that speed they could only get one song per side of a disk. So they would put out book-like "albums" of records that had up to 6 records, each in it's own sleeve (page) in the album. Very Heavy. I have a few of them.

Wyn, You probably shot some good music in your younger days. And some of those LPs might be worth a lot of money today.

That makes me think of all the comic books I had, as a kid, that my mother threw out just before they became valuable. Although, in collecting, condition is everything, and most of those comic books were NOT in the best condition.

OY! talk about OT. Mea Culpa, mea culpa.

Well I don' know how "whippersnapperish" you are, but you're close enough to win a cigar. It stood for Long Playing.

After 78s, and the 45 single, to have a record you could put on, and have it play for 20 to 30 minutes, nonstop, made it, indeed, a 33 & 1/3 RPM "long playing" record album. I don't why the term "album" continued in use, but it did. Just habit I guess.
