Biography

Biography by Jason Ankeny

At their peak in the 1970s, Cheech & Chong represented the mainstream embodiment of the attitudes and lifestyles of the underground drug culture. Much as W.C. Fields shot to fame by making alcohol the focus of his act, the duo of Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong emerged from a cloud of pot smoke, simultaneously championing and lampooning the stoner community ...

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Their groundbreaking 1971 debut, produced by Lou Adler and featuring the classic Dave .

Amazon.com

Though it sounds like it was conceived and recorded between bong hits inside a college dormitory, Cheech & Chong's 1971 debut album was actually the product of years of comedic honing. In the late 1960s, guitarist Tommy Chong founded a musical/performance art troupe called City Works. The venture was short-lived, but it introduced him to fellow boho-prankster Richard "Cheech" Marin. When City Works faltered, the duo hitched their wagon to the burgeoning drug culture of the day, and Cheech & Chong was born. Their brand of humor wasn't particularly innovative--after all, making comedy for stoners is like preaching to the choir--but it was unquestionably of its time, and more importantly, it took greater steps toward anesthetizing the "drug menace" than any government program ever has. Cheech & Chong treats drug consumption as a harmless, hapless joke; "Drug Czar" William Bennett could learn a lot from these cats. --Matt Hanks

Cheech and Chong may have turned into movie stars later in the '70's, but their best humour was on this classic album.

Cheech and Chong may have turned into movie stars later in the '70's, but their best humour was on this classic album. Stoner comedy has never been so hilarious as on these early bits: 'Dave', 'Blind Melon Chitlin', 'Acapulco Gold Filters' and 'Trippin In Court' are the best, but they're all excellent. This cd is even more consistently funny than the "Greatest Hit" compilation. This is essential Cheech and Chong.

This album is some of the funniest s--t I've ever heard! My favorite part is the long session of Pedro & Man watching TV. If you like real comedy(and even if you don't!) buy this album!

Released in August of 1971, Cheech & Chong's Grammy nominated self-titled debut LP peaked on Billboard's 200 chart at #28. The album was produced by Lou Adler, best known for his work with the Mamas & Papas and other DUNHILL label artists. Adler founded both DUNHILL and ODE, Cheech & Chong's label. This one-time manager of Jan & Dean also produced the theatrical films MONTEREY POP (1968) and THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (1975).

When this first C&C album was released, certain high school and college kids were already fans of the Firesign Theatre and their witty counterculture referenced comedy LPs. Richard Marin's and Thomas Chong's humor was far less subtle and quite obsessed with a certain combustible aromatic leaf. On this record, Chong mostly plays a numbed out guy called either "Stoner" or "Man," while the often quick-tongued Cheech did variations of his East L.A. Pedro de Pacas character. Of course there's exceptions, such as a prissy woman judge later reprised as "Sister Mary Elephant," a nearly comatose blues singer, a bell-toned radio DJ and a lowkey commecial spokesman.

Although no longer a dopefiend, the humor surpasses the stereotypes. As a "Dave" I am still regularily cursed with, "Dave's not here, Man."

There's something scary about picking up an album after 30 years and remembering every detail, tone of voice, ethic accent and punchline. Such was the impact of Cheech and Chong on my adolescent mind that listening to them in middle age was as though I had pulled them off the turntable just yesterday. The duo's sense of anarchy and "stickin' it to the man" is still fresh and (sadly?) relevant in the era of the Iraq War as it was in the era of the Vietnam War. But though comic tastes have evolved in C&C's direction, their wackiness and sense of fun set them apart.

C&C's cast of characters is memorable. We have super-smarmy faux-hip DJs (ala Wink Dinkerson), unapologetic drunken pederasts and witless stoners (Trippin' in Court) and a battalion of GI shirkers (Vietnam). Blind Melon Chitlin's classic and all-purpose response (Uh-YEAH!) provided part of the soundtrack for my high school years. C&C even managed some moral and social critiques. In "Mexico," all manner of misfits and advantage takers are allowed in, but a man of impeccable virtue gets the boot. In "Emergency Ward," a coupled of bored interns bet on whether a sick old man will make it to the desk, then make him wait while an addict wheedles drugs out of the pharmacy. between puffs of "Acapulco Gold," the advertising industry takes its lumps.

Cheech and Chong were radical for their time, bringing a strong ethnic component into their act and fueling it with profanity, drugs and disrespect for authority. Potent stuff for young minds, and fun (for one listen only) for one old guy recalling the adventure and thrill of hearing them when it all still mattered.

This Album is just great. From the beginning "Show Her My Ding-Dong" to the last scratch, Cheech and Chong make everything seem funnier.
