Catalogue Note

Reality...What a Concept! (1979) was Williams's first album, and was less intimate than the routines he delivered on stage. The album received glowing praise, with People magazine writing: "If nothing else, this LP of live nightclub routines proves that Robin Williams is like a butterfly in a harness on a network sitcom...TV inevitably constrains his dizzyingly bountiful imagination." Reality...What a Concept! made it into the Billboard Top 10—alongside Led Zeppelin's In Through the Out Door, and Supertramp's Breakfast in America—and sold more than half a million copies.
