The Godfrey Cambridge Show: Live at the Hotel Aladdin (1968)
Godfrey Cambridge is a criminally neglected figure in stand-up history. He was a great comedian and a prominent personality in the late fifties, all of the sixties, and the first half of the nineteen seventies. Unlike most stand-up comics he was actually a very fine actor appearing or starring in films like The President's Analyst (1967), Cotton Comes to Harlem (1970) and Watermelon Man (1970). This is the last of what I believe were four comedy LPs he recorded for Epic Records.
