This Is Richard Pryor

Spotify

For the youngsters, a master class in comedy. For the old-timers, two hours of choice cuts that reinforce Mr. Pryor’s greatness. Even something as wrongheaded as the mid-‘80s AIDS bit “One Night Stands” begins with some advice Bill Cosby should have taken to heart (“I don’t want to end up in the papers…”). But whoever decided to include four tracks from The Wiz movie soundtrack ought to have his or her head examined—a better alternative would have been “Word Association” from the Saturday Night Live cast album. Or any of Mr. Pryor’s stuff from Wattstax.
