Personnel: Bill Cosby (vocals). Recording information: Harrah's, Lake Tahoe, NV. Photographer: Ed Thrasher. Anyone whose first experience with Bill Cosby was through the cartoon FAT ALBERT may be surprised to discover that some of those characters and stories date back to the comedian's earliest stand-up work. (Anyone whose first experience with Cosby only dates back to his 1980s role as Cliff Huxtable has been missing out altogether.) "Chicken Heart," a remembrance of listening to scary radio dramas (the story later became an entire "Cosby Kids" episode), is one of those classic Cosby combinations of narrative, character voices, and microphone sound effects that picks up hysterical velocity at the story's climax. WONDERFULNESS has a number of other standout pieces. "Tonsils" tells the story of a hospital visit in which Cosby and his two fellow patients are promised "all the ice cream in the world you can eat." "Go Carts" recounts a race down Dead Man's Hill ("It was called Dead Man's Hill because it went straight down, for about a quarter of a mile, and then it emptied out onto a freeway"). "The Special Class" and "Niagara Falls," about a couple of adults, are just as funny.

  • Great CD

    Growing up I loved listening to Bill Cosby. I wanted to share some of his quotes I use with my children. My youngest, age 10, loved "go carts" and "the chicken heart". Spending quality time with my children and having them use their imagination vs. a visual (TV) experience is GREAT.
