1. You Gotta Wash Your Ass - Redd Foxx

Editorial Reviews

Parental Advisory. Ne'er a truer word was spoken! And, lest someone be offended by the title of this album, let's just remember that this is REDD FOXX, the guy who practically invented off-color humor! And this album, released by Atlantic in 1976, was actually pretty tame compared to the "party records" that Redd recorded for the Dootone label that were so, um, salty that record stores had to hide them under the counter. That's not to say, though, that this record isn't downright raunchy at times; as befitting the man who paved the way for Richard Pryor, Chris Rock and even Andrew Dice Clay, there are plenty of unbleeped three-, four- and even twelve-letter words! So consider yourself warned. Actually, though, the ones who needed warning were the audience members at the Apollo Theater that night; Redd unmercifully picks on them with such routines as 'I Hope Your Dog Dies'; 'Who Does Your Hair?'; 'Jaws on That Hippo', and 'You're Kind of Dumb and Ugly', while he addresses some of his favorite topics with 'Cancer Better Not F--- with My Body'; 'My Old Lady Wanted to Make Love All the Time'; 'I Talk About Sex Mostly', and 'Close Your Legs' among the comic riffs whose titles we can (barely) print. This almost won a Grammy, but we doubt Redd gave a $#@! A Collectors' Choice Music exclusive.

This is a cd of a classic Red Foxx act he did in the late '70s. I saw him live during the original tour this cd was drawn from. The comparison betweeen his true stage act and the material collected here is just barely the same. Yes, the cd is funny, yes Red is great, however it is far, far shorter than his act and many truly great parts have been left out. Even the title, which is the topic of the closing of his act has been chopped down to a mere fraction of what it was. If you never heard this material before, you might like it. If you are trying to remember a classic performance by a great, dont bother.

Bought this album for the album cover. I had it framed and now it hangs in my bathroom. Great comedy album, Redd Foxx really never made a bad comedy album. Glad I was able to find it at a reasonable cost. One of the reasons I love Amazon so, you can find almost anything on thier site.

It doesn't even have wash your ass on the disc!! It's funny, good redd foxx stuff, but the title is totally misleading. Do not buy this if you want the "wash your ass" bit.

this is the party tape we use to listen to and eat pigfeet and collared greens and Yams. Redd foxx would make you scream and crack up on the SHO Nuff, Nuff.still wild funny. Redd was one of the Baddest Stand Up Comedians Ever.a funny soul brother.
