Moms Mabley "live at the greek theater"


(Mercury, 1969) Moms is very funny on this, but it's relatively polished and audience is less raucous than on some of her earlier, more thrilling Chess records. But coming out the same year s her serious vocal LP this is elevated by having a fine funk song, and better yet, a straight novelty song, "Hide the Whiskey," featuring a weird in-song laugh track. I love Moms Mabley.
