Jimmie Walker - Dy-No-Mite 1975

Jimmie Walker
James Carter Walker
Jun 25 1947 -

Jimmie Walker enjoyed a great deal of visibility in the mid- to late '70s, when he was famous for his portrayal of J.J. Evans on the CBS sitcom Good Times. It was in 1975 that Buddah released Dyn-O-Mite, Walker's first standup comedy album. Recorded live at the Cellar Door in Washington, D.C., this vinyl LP underscores Walker's appreciation of Richard Pryor (who was huge at the time). Unlike Pryor, Walker doesn't get into sexually explicit material or inundate listeners with profanity. But like Pryor, he has a lot of fun confronting racial stereotypes. While Walker's material falls short of brilliant, the native New Yorker (who was only 25 when this LP came out) shows himself to be a genuinely funny social commentator. As time passed, Walker evolved as a comedian; Dyn-O Mite offers an enjoyable snapshot of where he was in 1975.
