Richard Pryor
No Pryor Restraint: Life in Concert
CD $89.42 / Shout! Factory

Pryor, the late actor-comedian whose profanely funny routines made him an entertainment icon, is saluted in this comprehensive 7-CD, 2-DVD collection, which spans his early years of 1960s stand-up clubs through the heyday of his ’80s stage and movie superstardom. In addition to 12 hours of audio recordings culled from eight of his classic LPs, there are also videos of three complete in-concert films, plus a book of rare photos, celebrity tributes and an essay from his widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor.
