Dan Blazek presents

Richard Pryor’s Laff Recordings

Considered perhaps the greatest Stand-up comedian of all time, Richard
Pryor's complex and dramatic life extended into his recording history as
well. Much has been written about Pryor’s 1967 Las Vegas meltdown, which
turned his career inside out. He collected himself in the black clubs of
the day, signing with Laff Records, which released his seminal album,
"Craps (After hours)" in 1971. Considered a minor classic, "Craps" ushered
in Pryor's new raw and militant voice. But just as quickly Pryor jumped to
the Partee/Stax label and subsequently to Warner Brothers, rocketing to
success with "That [N-word's] Crazy" in 1974. In the 1970's, Louis and
David Drozen of Laff Records had an agreement that they could release any
album of Pryor's for which they owned earlier material. Pryor’s Laff record
releases trailed upon the success of his cinema and Warner album releases,
even winning him a Grammy in 1982. Years later Pryor regained control of
his Laff masters and three separate re-releases ensued. This presentation
seeks to examine and rate Pryor’s Laff albums, which spotlight his
formative genius and had been neglected by the Goldmine standard comedy
guide.

Bonus: Time permitting, Pryor’s appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show provide
additional insight into his early recordings.

Daniel Blazek is the former head of the Government Information Section at
the Otto G. Richter Library, University of Miami. He is currently a
Recorded Sound Technician at the Library of Congress, Culpeper, VA, and has
recently been a liaison for procuring Jewish LPs from Florida Atlantic
University.
