When Rivers really mattered
Reginald D. Garrard | Camilla, GA USA | 03/08/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The title is in no way meant to condemn the comedienne; however, she doesn't exhibit the same wit and humor today that she did on this landmark recording from the early eighties. Her respective routines about being recognized in the gynecologist office and the English "royals" are priceless.And the Rivers in Blackgama cover is totally "Reagan-era chic"."
When Joan was really bad.....

"Joan Rivers is a semi-legend...Of course, she is, and it's unfortunate that her comedy act today is sour and mean-spirited. Remember her pre-awards show? And how SNL viciously satirized her? Well, in the earlier days, her comedy was fresh, witty, and extremely funny. Who could ever forget her put-downs of rock stars, gyne exams, and, of course, the British Royal Family? It's all here in this album: when Joan was mean and witty at the same time...always with a twinkle in her eye. What demons she is exorcising these days is anybody's guess. But when she asked, "What Becomes a Semi-Legend Most?", she was on top of her game, and we all loved her for it. I still laugh when I remember her line: "Aren't rock stars ugly?....The lips, the one with the lips? Mick Jagger! He has child-bearing lips!"Now that was funny..."
Please Keep Talking, Joan

"Joan Rivers is an American original and this CD captures her at her peak. Clever, brilliant, brash, outrageous, controversial, Joan was ahead of her time but stays timelessly hilarious on this CD. If you like Joan, you absolutely must get this - I am so grateful to have found it on! I originally heard this "album" when it came out in the early '80s and have loved it ever since. Joan rules!!"
