|Bill Cosby chronology|
Badfoot Brown & the Bunions Bradford Funeral & Marching Band (1971) is an album by Bill Cosby.
It is not a comedy album, but actually an instrumental jazz-funk album in which Cosby plays electric piano. (It is his third musical album release). The first track is a tribute to the late Martin Luther King, Jr..
A Tribe Called Quest used a sample from "Martin's Funeral" for their track, "We Can Get Down".
The album was hard to find for many years. It was issued on compact disc in the spring of 2008 by Dusty Groove America.
Another jazz-funk album, titled Bill Cosby Presents Badfoot Brown & the Bunions Bradford Funeral Marching Band (no "&" between Funeral and Marching) was released the following year. Cosby did not perform on that album, but he wrote the music and produced it. The second album is still out of print.
All songs written and composed by Bill Cosby.
