A Quaint Museum Piece

"If you're a fan of the I-man, you'll appreciate the historical nature of this CD. It does showcase some of his comedy bits from his early days, when he first moved from Cleveland to New York. Indeed, there are cuts from WGAR and WNBC included on the CD. These were outrageous back in the mid-70's, but they seem dated today. Although I own the LP from those many years ago, I recently listened to the CD, and got a chuckle. It's more of a museum piece for I-fans than it is a cutting-edge comedy album. I would recommend, if you can find it, his CD entitled "This Honky's Nuts," which is a club recording from the seventies; it's very salty -- the cover proclaims, "X-Rated," itself an anachronism -- and he says some stuff on there that you would never be able to get away with in today's PC culture, but I got huge belly-laughs listening to it. He termed his act "Imus in the Evening," and it's not anything you would have heard on your father's radio. Come to think of it, it was your radio it would not have been on, as your father was probably listening to Rambling with Gambling. In any case, it's worth the Internet search to find this one."
The Best of the Best of Imus In The Morning

"Howard Stern claims that Imus ripped him off, Well Howie YOUR WRONG!! because "1200 Hamburgers To Go" is Don Imus' first comedy album which was released in 1972 presumably while Howard Stern was unsuccessfully trying to score with a girl in High School on Roosevelt Long Island.This album has some classic Don Imus bits including the title track in which he calls a local hamburger restaurant claiming to be with military and wishes to order 1200 Hamburgers for the troops, Also Imus as the corrupt, slimy money grubbing Reverend Bill Sol Hargus from his ministry in Del Rio Texas, This is a laugh a minute of classic bits that made Imus famous."
