Department of Less-Than-Hilarious Comedy Albums/ Today's offering: The Okra Eaters.
A scandalous, shocking, nasty damned dish.
They really need little introduction, just pour a libation, settle down and get ready to laugh until some okra comes up.
This is the complete 1974 adults-only lp, with ripping incidental music by the Johnny Otis Show, and another lovely (?) Laff Records cover designed by Howard Goldstein with Bud Fraker photography. Oh, and I fixed the tracklist- the original lp had the cuts listed wrong on the cover and the label. But who would care or notice? Tracklist schmacklist.
Again--if you didn't glean this already--This is NOT work-safe or even safe for pets or children, for that matter- just very down and dirty. It hovers somewhere just short of 'foul' and nearby to 'cute'.
