Artist: Cosby, Bill
Description:
Bill Cosby concluded his five-year (1964-1969) run with Warner Brothers -- which yielded no less than eight Top 40 spoken word comedy long-players -- with It's True! It's True! (1969). If the written copy on the rear LP jacket is to be taken at face value, the material on this roughly half-hour platter consists of spontaneous and extemporaneous items that Cosby "winged" during a run at Harrah's Casino in Lake Tahoe, NV. Concurrent with his scheduled performances -- in early 1968 -- the Reno Musicians' Union went on strike.

Decidedly mature themes began emerging as early as Revenge (1967) -- particularly with "Wives" -- and the motif continued as To Russell, My Brother, Whom I Slept With (1968) on the shorter pieces "Conflict" and "The Apple." In fact, the opening selection is more or less a continuation of the latter title as "It's All the Women's Fault" delves into similar territory as he playfully chides the fairer sex about their responsibility and roles in the process -- dating all the way back to Eve. Of the numerous shorter monologues, Cosby's observations on "Helicopters" is among the best of the bunch as he proffers an alternative for those who might suffer from the fear of being able to see "where you're going to crash." The solution is to have helicopters that "go about eight feet in the air. No higher than that." "Ants Are Cool" is one of the disc's rare bits to be infused with some classic Cosby kiddy nostalgia. He comments that even when "you cover up their hole, they [will] start moving the stones again and they don't even curse at 'cha." In "Burlesque Shows" he talks about his earliest experiences in show biz, while "The American Gambler" is a poke at the extroverted morays of people as they basically pull a type of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The irony and Murphy's Law-nature of "Shoelaces" is very briefly -- at under a minut...
