Her respective routines about being recognized in the gynecologist office and the English "royals" are priceless.
And the Rivers in Blackgama cover is totally "Reagan-era chic".
For a thirty year old plus album the sound quality is excellent. It's a shame that it took the tragic and untimely passing of Joan to finally get this re-released, even if only as a digital download. I hope her comedy albums from the sixties will get re-released as I'd like to hear them and I know others will, too.
Of course, she is, and it's unfortunate that her comedy act today is sour and mean-spirited. Remember her pre-awards show? And how SNL viciously satirized her? Well, in the earlier days, her comedy was fresh, witty, and extremely funny. Who could ever forget her put-downs of rock stars, gyne exams, and, of course, the British Royal Family?
It's all here in this album: when Joan was mean and witty at the same time...always with a twinkle in her eye. What demons she is exorcising these days is anybody's guess. But when she asked, "What Becomes a Semi-Legend Most?", she was on top of her game, and we all loved her for it. I still laugh when I remember her line: "Aren't rock stars ugly?....The lips, the one with the lips? Mick Jagger! He has child-bearing lips!"
Now that was funny...
It's sheer ignorance when some people writing here have said that Joan isn't as funny today as she was then. They, sadly for them, have no idea what they are talking about. They are seeing her stretched face on QVC and seeing her swap inane quips with passing celebrities on the red carpet and other junk like that. People, she is just paying the bills (as if she doesn't have enough money) with this garbage. It's the work of an aging workaholic.Read more ›
