Editorial Reviews

Who Me? I'm Not Him is a fascinating glimpse of early Richard Pryor. He's honest and angry (as always), but here Pryor is closer to crossover king Bill Cosby than XXX-rated Redd Foxx. Like Cosby, Pryor takes the audience back into his childhood: "I was a kid until I was about 8. Then I became a Negro ... I came home. 'Hey Dad, I'm a Negro.' 'Funny, I thought you were Polish.'" That bit, as well as "Weasel" and "Hippy Dippys," could be on any of Cosby's mid-1960s Warner Brothers recordings. Still, the seeds of his 1970s flowering had been planted: routines taken from the seamier side of Pryor's life stand in counterpoint to the childhood memories and (amazingly enough) straightforward impressions. All in all, a fascinating, funny CD. --Michael Gerber

This is not the worst Richard Pryor album and it's not the best. When Richard left Laff Records, he signed with Warner Bros. but Laff still had rights over his material. They let him out of the contract but they held on to the material. So what we have here are hastily packaged bits from the Laff vaults, pieced together so Laff could benefit from Richard's Warner Bros. success. Whenever Warner Bros. would release an album, Laff would release one also to profit from his popularity. That's why this album sounds pieced together, because it is. Laff was trying to cash in.

The material is not bad at all, it's just put together wrong. It's like someone went in the vaults, didn't even bother to listen to the tracks, just pasted them together and said, "Voila!" So, it's not the material, it's the presentation. I give it a 3 stars because Laff could have done a better job putting this album together.

So if you love Richard Pryor, like I do, and just love to hear the sound of his voice, go ahead and take a chance. But stay away from 'The Wizard of Comedy.' It's worse than this one. If you want to hear some good ol' polished Richard Pryor, a Richard Pryor album that has a flow, go with his Warner Bros. recordings. All of his Warner Bros. recordings can be found in his box set, 'And It's Deep Too.' But if you can't afford that, you can go with his Anthology or the 'Evolution/Revolution' CD. Unless you are just a die-hard Richard Pryor fan, you can pass on this one.

As stated by another reviewer, this album is edited in a way that the listener always feels like he has entered the joke halfway through, and only hears part of a punch line. The individual tracks on this album are very short, unlike one of Pryor's most popular tracks, "Mudbone", and they dont flow well either.
