" 'Although the cover lists it as his third, this was actually Rudy Ray Moore's seventh full length comedy album release. After the massive success of Eat Out More Often and This Pussy Belongs To Me in 1970, Moore had developed a formula taking long traditional spoken monologues, or 'toasts', and freshening them up for the 'now generation' as he would call it. The release of The Cockpit in early 1971 continued this formula and also introduced the world to 'Petey Wheatstraw: The Devil's Son-In-Law', a character which Moore would later base a feature length film around in 1977. The Cockpit remains one of Moore's most popular albums. It also needs to be noted that this was the first time Rudy used completely topless women in his artwork and this may in fact be the first major record release that includes a man on the cover with semi-naked women!
