I posted the "Derek and Clive Live" album today.. might have posted it before?. It is an album I know from early 80's and Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, I knew way before that in the 60's as hit UK TV comedy duo in the show "Not only...but also". As the documentary states a "bootleg" of Derek and Clive live was around in the 70's... I heard about it... shock horror.. at least naughty.. well known comedians who "came into people's living rooms" on TV... rumored to say the f word :eek And.... EVEN THE C WORD :94
I finally heard a "bootleg" audio cassette early 80's and still have a copy of it... but the album was later released as an official Album. I can't say it SHOCKED me (nothing would) but it certainly was an extra step.. even beyond Lenny Bruce and George Carlin (who I had heard).. BECAUSE these were two such familiar TV comedians (to British audiences). Dudley Moore was even a Hollywood darling in family comedy movies by then too.

The rumor I heard was this was Peter Cook and Dudley Moore.. drunk and/ or stoned doing a bit of a "turn" at a night club....not thinking it would be heard by a wider audience... presumably secretly taped. The truth is that they were well aware of the recording and it was not out of the norm for them at all. They just filtered what they finally performed and recorded for TV.

With D&C Live I find you soon get past any SHOCK of the F word and even C word... for one thing the words are used SO MUCH... they cease to have shock appeal even as you listen. The album has some great lines that went into my brain at the time.. and I still on occasion quote. :cool

I also posted the 2 follow-up Derek and Clive albums.. but as I listened I realized ppl (especially women) could take offense..
It does need to be put in context however.... hence it might pay to watch the documentary first. :)

So interesting, Rumpole. :)

I watched the Dudley Moore documentaries, his battle with PSP and facts about Peter Cook first. I suggest anyone watch these to begin. A MUST.

Not only are they fascinating and entertaining, they give you insight into their reasoning for doing the more risque recordings.

I watched the "Offensive" vids next. Hilarious, entertaining. :Gslap

I will set aside some "movie time" to listen to each of the recorded albums.
