Prison Play
Posted in Honey on 12.15.05

Honey HQ has had some weird internet issues, so I haven’t been able to upload (or stay on the net for more than 10 mins) for the past week, but we’ve figured all that out so we gotta play catch up. Locust St has a great series of posts about drinkin’ and drinks going on now. I was suppose to submit the wonderful song Cocktails by Bill Anderson, but I got too busy and forgot. But there’s a great batch of songs up and of course really great writing on the subject.

Richard Pryor died of a heart attack this past Saturday. We at Honey picked this track to pay our respects to one of the greatest comedians to have ever performer. It’s from 1968 – and is one of my favorite bits by him, even though he would get better and more assured in the years immediately following this recording, Prison Play still remains one of his greatest bits.
