Victim of the Joke An Opera
LP 
Price: $25.79

Product Notes

Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. The 1971 concept album, Victim of the Joke?... An Opera is the third solo LP from the acclaimed producer, songwriter, and singer David Porter. Listed as one of the 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time by Rolling Stone, Porter established his career at Stax, working alongside writing partner Isaac Hayes. This ambitious LP stands as a testament to Porter's endless creative spirit. Victim of the Joke pairs original pop-infused soul music and covers (including an infectious rendition of the Beatles' "Help!") with interludes of dialogue to tell the story of a love affair. Porter's searing rendition of the standard "(I'm Afraid) The Masquerade Is Over" has been sampled in over 35 songs by artists like The Notorious B.I.G., the Wu-Tang Clan and Mary J. Blige. This is the first-time Victim of the Joke? Is reissued on vinyl.
