When Bill Harris recorded his first album as a leader in 1956, he had already been the electric guitar accompanist for The Clovers one of the most outstanding r&b vocal groups since 1949. Fellow guitarist Mickey Baker recommended him to Mercury/EmArcy s a&r head, Bob Shad, and it is to Shad s credit that he gave Harris so much scope on his debut. The full colored natural sound of Harris s unamplified Spanish guitar is a rare and interesting pleasure. In the words of Nat Hentoff, the blues-soul of Harris courses richly through everything he plays. On his second album for the label, The Harris Touch, Bill was backed by a conventional rhythm section and a bongo player.

15 years after his death, Bill Hicks is now more popular than ever, and is widely seen as one of the best comedian of the modern era. However, in America, where he challenged institutions and accepted ways of thinking, he suffered censorship and was never truly recognized by a wide audience in the United States. In the country which enshrines freedom of speech in its constitution his story is truly about what it means to be an American.

William Melvin "Bill" Hicks (December 16, 1961 – February 26, 1994) was an American stand-up comedian, satirist and musician. His humor challenged mainstream beliefs, aiming to "enlighten people to think for themselves." Hicks used a ribald approach to express his material, describing himself as "Chomsky with dick jokes." His jokes included general discussions about society, religion, politics, philosophy and personal issues. Hicks' material was often controversial and steeped in dark comedy. In both his stand-up performances and during interviews, he often criticized consumerism, superficiality, mediocrity and banality within the media and popular culture, describing them as oppressive tools of the ruling class, meant to "keep people stupid and apathetic."

Bill Hicks - Shock and Awe

Bill Hicks was the last great social satirist, the true descendent of comedians like Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor and Mort Sahl. The self-described 'Prince of Darkness,' his work confronted the hypocrisies of late-20th century American life, divining comedy from the more evil impulses of the government and the mass media while assaulting the soulnessness of mainstream culture. An alcoholic, coke addict and chain smoker, Hicks also experimented heavily with hallucinogenic drugs, and his monologues addressed issues of expanded consciousness and spirituality rare to the comedy format; for all of the rage inherent in his stand-up, his message was one of transcendence – as he frequently reminded audiences, 'The truth will set you free.' This release was recorded live on stage in 1992 at Oxford Playhouse Theater, Shock & Awe presents Bill Hicks in full flow with his views on the war and English culture.

Love Laughter Truth is a compilation of previously unreleased material culled from the multitude of live performance recordings Bill made for his personal use from the mid 80's until his death in 1994. In conjunction with the Hicks Estate, hours of these shows were reviewed, and the bits that were not released on Bill's other albums were edited and compiled to a single incendiary CD.

Live in Pittsburgh is the first in a series of previously unreleased complete live performances from the Hicks Estate’s private collection. Recorded in 1991 in front of what Bill dubbed “the worst audience I've ever faced.” – he whips out every trick in his book to win them over. The show is magic.

Having already recorded two albums live on stage, Hicks developed a more complex plan for ARIZONA BAY. He composed music for the program, painting a sonic portrait of life on the beach after the "big one" dropped California into the Pacific Ocean. He constructed the album with alternating bits of music and comedy, so that while the comedy bits could be taken on their own, the tension the music provided was subversively adding up to a much greater undercurrent of unease. Bill wrote the following note about ARIZONA BAY shortly after finishing its rough edit and mix in the spring of 1993:
"By the way, as far as I know this [mixing-in of music] has never been done before with a comedy album. (I hope there's not a reason for that!) The important thing to remember is that this idea for ARIZONA BAY extends beyond just this album. It is a philosophy about not wanting or having to go through the mainstream to have your work mangled and made mediocre. I believe there is a great deal of anti-LA (and all that LA stands for) out there. I believe people would proudly wear "Arizona Bay" t-shirts and this whole idea could help bring into focus people's antipathy for mainstream America, while also being a concept for those people to rally around."

“Bill Hicks was not your average comedian. Instead of just making jokes, he made jokes with a point to them. Relentless picks at many of the same issues he discussed on Dangerous, except this time, Hicks raises the spiritual and philosophical stakes considerably, as well as introducing his anti-capitalist stance (which he elaborates on more thoroughly on the posthumously released CDs Arizona Bay and Rant in E-Minor). In "What is Pornography?," Hicks uses the Supreme Court definition of pornography ("any act having no artistic merit and causes sexual thoughts") to convince the audience that commercials are pornography, as well as politicians who would rather spend money on the military rather than education. In "Odd Beliefs," Hicks points out that many Christians wear crosses around their necks and asks the audience, "You think when Jesus comes back, he wants to see a f**kin' cross?" Again, Hicks' extreme stances on topics ranging from the war on drugs to the treatment of senior citizens ("A Killer Idea") might offend some listeners, but his act is a comedic catharsis, and he holds none of his feelings back, which more often than not is a good thing.”
