Silver Throat Front

Silver Throat: Bill Cosby Sings (1967) is the fifth album by Bill Cosby.
It was his first album that was recorded in the studio, as well as his first album that showcased his singing, backed by the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band. The album consisted mostly of straightforward rhythm and blues performances, including several Jimmy Reed songs, a cover version of Ray Charles' "I Got a Woman" with slightly comedic lyrics, "Mojo Workout", which was a sequel to the Muddy Waters classic "I Got My Mojo Workin'", and "Little Ole Man" which combined a comedic monologue with Stevie Wonder's "Uptight, Everything's Alright". Also included is an original song credited to Cosby, "Don'cha Know".
"Little Ole Man" became a major hit upon release as a single, attaining gold record status for selling one million copies in the United States and reaching #4 on the U.S. Hot 100 chart. It was Cosby's only hit song.
