1974 Bill Cosby – At Last Bill Cosby Really Sings

At Last Bill Cosby Really Sings is an album by Bill Cosby. It is his fifth music-based album and the only one released on the Stax Records-distributed Partee Records. It features appearances from former Stevie Wonder band members like future R&B star Ray Parker Jr on guitar, and also features a second collaboration with his songwriting partner Stu Gardner, who plays organ on this set.

A truncated, instrumental version of Kiss Me would serve as the theme for The Cosby Show some ten years later.
