Eddie Harris — The Reason Why I’m Talking Shit

I’d heard a couple snippets from this album, but never seen it in person.  Clips from it have traveled around a bit in the musician community.  There is little music other than some funky interludes, it’s all between song banter–essentially a comedy LP.  I like Eddie Harris and like comedy, so I decided to find a copy online.  I snagged a copy easily and cheaply, and while some parts are funnier than others, it gives a look into what sitting in the audience of a mid-70’s Eddie Harris show was like.  Two of my favorites are included below.
