Before we go any further, I have to mention that I have a great deal of respect for Bill Cosby. I grew up listening to his comedy routines from the 60s and I think he's up there with the greats.
But this... this is something else entirely and I hurt a bit inside everytime I look at it.
To add insult to injury, this is only one of three albums I own on which Bill Cosby attempts to sing. Thankfully it's the only one with a Disco theme.
I'm still not convinced of Mr. Cosby's intent with this (and his other) albums... Is he trying to be funny? Or is this supposed to be serious? The material appears to be comedic in nature... yet it's not making me laugh.
I don't know. Perhaps I'll never know. It's things like this that keep me up at night.
That and the bottlecap-adorned jacket that Bill's wearing on the cover there.
