What Becomes a Semi-Legend Most? caputres Joan Rivers at her mid-'80s peak, offering routines on The National Enquirer, the Royal Family, fame, sex, Heidi Abromowitz and, of course, gynecologists. Although it doesn't fully capture the scope of her talent, it remains the best comedy album Rivers ever recorded and it's not a bad way to become acquainted with her routines.
