Eddie Murphy is the self-titled debut solo album by Eddie Murphy. It was released in late 1982, on Columbia Records. It was certified as a Gold record and received a Grammy award nomination. The album drew ire from the gay community, Asian-American groups and Women's groups for some of the humor. In terms of material, the release draws upon Murphy's work on the program Saturday Night Live. The recording took place from April 30, 1982 to May 1, 1982, capturing some of Murphy's routines at the New York City venue The Comic Strip. In addition to the comedy tracks, the album contained several actual musical numbers, including the parody hip-hop song "Boogie in Your Butt", which became a minor hit on the R&B charts.more »
