Released January 1977. A Firesign Chat Tracklist.
A Firesign Chat is a 1977 comedy album by the Firesign Theatre. It was the only record the group made under a new contract with Butterfly Records. The Firesign Theatre (Peter Bergman, Philip Proctor, Phil Austin, and David Ossman) lost their prestigious recording contract with Columbia Records, under which they had produced fourteen albums (including one on the subsidiary Epic Records label), after their thirteenth album In the Next World, You're on Your Own sold poorly in 1975.

The Firesign Theatre.
The Firesign Theatre took it easy for the rest of the 1970s, producing a 1977 album Just Folks. A Firesign Chat based largely on unreleased Dear Friends radio material, and a Proctor and Bergman studio album in 1978, Give Us a Break, which lampooned radio and television of the time. Norman Lear and Bud Yorkin's Tandem Productions bought the rights to Nick Danger for a TV series to star George Hamilton; and in 1978, New Line Cinema began negotiations to make a movie starring Chevy Chase. Tiny Ossman (back row) and Annalee Austin (middle row) functioned as "associate Firesigns" in the group's golden era of the 1970s.
