Sweet!  I have the stuff that was on And It's Deep Too, but not the rest of it.  Can't wait.

My brother and I used to hide in the garage and listen to his shows on cassette. (Shut up. I know I'm old). One of the most talented comedians ever.

When I was a kid my parents would invite my aunts and uncles over, and after they thought that they put us to sleep, they put on the Richard Pryor albums and sit around the table drinking and playing cards

Audio only, bummer.
Love watching him in action.

We used to live to far out to get TV so Richard Pryor's albums got played on heavy rotation in this honky's house.

However, the set was still recorded and surviving tapes have been collected into a 20-track collection. 14 tracks are pulled from a promotional CD included with copies of the No Pryor Restraint: Life in Concert box set released in 2013. The six bonus tracks were previously included 2000's ...And It's Deep Too!: The Complete Warner Bros. Recordings (1968-1992) and 2005's Evolution/Revolution: The Early Years (1966-1974).

In other words, it's all previously released material. Well, at least it's all in one place now.

My mom didn't know that I'd found her ostensibly hidden albums.  I'd listen to them in my room every afternoon, while she was still at work and the babysitter was ignoring me.  I had every routine memorized.  I was 9 years old.

As kids we recited lines from his bits. We had no idea what we were talking about. We understood parts, but really had no idea what he was really trying to say.

I find "gentleman" to be a pretty good substitute when recounting Richard Pryor routines from the 70s.

One of his shows (Live at Longbeach IIRC) has a bit about the police killing black people with choke holds (only Richard doesn't say "black people"). Forty plus years later and the cops are still murdering black people while "restraining" them, but the n-word is now considered beyond the pale. Progress.

/"This is my favourite part of the show, when white people come back from the bathroom and find gentlemen done stole their seats."
