Hilarious & Downright Filthy 1972 Album Originally Released in the Middle of the Nixon Years!
You might think that a certain bad-hair-having, shit-talking presidential candidate is obnoxious, but there's one man who would definitely be more dangerous in the White House: Dolemite. Traffic Entertainment Group is proud to reissue this hilarious and downright filthy album to celebrate the mud-slinging we'll all be experiencing this fall. And, of course, to remind the world of Rudy Ray Moore's unique comedic genius.
Originally released in 1972 in the middle of the disaster now known as the Nixon Years, the album is filled to the brim with Moore's bawdy but debatably insightful takes on politics, sex and American society, funneled through the lens of his most famous persona, Dolemite. As it warns on the cover: 'Rated XXX: For Adults Only.' And they aren't kidding. The album's lengthy first cut, "Campaign Speech," is worth the price of admission alone. Ranting for ten minutes straight, Moore lets it all hang out, with every bit of profanity he can muster. It's certainly interesting to hear some of his words more than four decades later.
The rest of the album's 13 songs are equally loud, offensive, funny and even - when the audience isn't expecting it - serious. With a live soul group grooving behind him and a live audience yelling support along the way, he gives his fans what they want on cuts like "Dance Of The Freaks," "Long Island Duck," "Farting Contest" and "Chester & Mr. Dillon." Released on vinyl with its eye-catching original front and back artwork, it's a great way to relive the comedic bravery and brashness of a truly unique man, Rudy Ray Moore.
