Dick GregoryEast & West ... LP
Colpix, 1961. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Dick Gregory raps it proud and loud – in a set of recordings that features one side recorded on the east coast, and one on the west! Gregory's still very much a comedian at this point in his career, but already his work is peppered strongly with political elements – the kind of personal, earnest approach to his material that was years ahead of its time – and which went onto open the door for countless other comedians to come! Side one was recorded at The Blue Angel, and side two at The Hungry I. LP, Vinyl record album

HarmonicatsSelected Favorites ... LP
Mercury, 1950s. Very Good+ ... $0.49
Harmony harmonica – from one of the coolest groups ever! The Harmonicats were three cats who all played harmonicas – working the instruments together in a cool and quirky sound that felt exotic at times, mellow at others, and which was always filled with a playful sense of style. This set brings together some of their best tunes from the 50s – and titles include "Harbor Lights", "Clair De Lune", "At Dawn", "Peg O My Heart", "Lezchinka", "The Gallop Of The Comedians", and "The Sardar March". LP, Vinyl record album

TemptationsTemptations Show ... LP
Gordy, 1969. Very Good ... $2.99
Tracks recorded for a TV show the Temps performed at the height of their popularity at the end of the 60s. The best cuts retain the strong heavy soul fuzzed-out groove of their studio albums – even if the album does feature the group doing material in medley form. For some strange reason, the show (and album) features a guest appearance from Kay Stevens (for some class, perhaps?), plus a more predictable visit from comedian George Kirby. Titles include "Runaway Child, Running Wild", "Somebody's Keeping Score", "Cloud Nine", "Beauty Is Only Skin Deep", and "Try It Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some wear, light stains, a split spine, a split bottom seam, and some pen.)

New Dick GregoryIn Living Black & White ... LP
Colpix, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sharp-edged wit from a young Dick Gregory – and the kind of record that easily set the standard for countless comics to come! The tracks here are mostly free-form – still structured into a few routines, but also pretty easygoing and open – with more of the openly rapping sort of approach also used by Lenny Bruce and Mort Sahl at the time. Gregory's certainly got all the politics of the latter, focused into his own unique perspective – one that was a key force of change in the Civil Rights era. Titles include "The Congo Daily Tribune", "Comedians Of The 60s", "Thoughts On Outer Space", and "Not Poor Just Busted". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, a split bottom seam and partially split top seam.)

New Mickey KatzMish Mosh ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic work from borscht-belt comedian Mickey Katz – a mix of Jewish melodies, jazz instrumentation, and klezmer influences – all wrapped around song parodies of popular 50s American tunes! The titles say it all – and they include "How Much Is That Pickle In The Window", "Don't Let The Schmaltz Get In Your Eyes", "Sixteen Tons", "That's Morris", "You Belong To Me", and "Home Ofen Range". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing.)

New Lord BuckleyMost Immaculately Hip Aristocrat ... CD
Straight/Rhino, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the strongest recordings ever made of the mad mad Lord Buckley! The album was issued in the late 60s for Frank Zappa's Straight label – but it features material recorded more than a decade before – at a time when Buckley was still alive, and one of the most bad-rapping comedian's to ever hit a stage. The approach is somewhat freer than some of Buckley's earlier sides – allowing the ersatz comedian a chance to really riff on a variety of subjects – talking with almost a jazz improvisational energy, in the way that made him a big favorite for the beat generation. The overall nature of the record is kind of hard to pin down – as it's not really comedy, just more of a freewheeling spoken session that's a bit jive, a bit beatnik, and plenty darn crazy! Titles include "The Raven", "The King Of Bad Cats", "Governor Slugwell", and "The Hip Einie". CD

New Prince PaulPolitics Of Business ... CD
Razor & Tie, 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Prince Paul returns to the hard-hitting, ambitious narrative format of his great Prince Among Thieves LP with this all star effort that features Guru, Masta Ace, Trugoy, Planet Asia, the Beatnuts, Chuck D, Ice T, Jean Grae, Premier, Kardinal Official, Erick Sermon, Sly Boogie, MF Doom, comedians Dave Chappelle & Chris Rock, and others. This time the story line covers the life span of a hip hop record, and the hard truths of a life in the business. The incisively satirical skits that Paul's famous for (he's one of the VERY few cats that can actually pull those things off, possibly because he hires actual comics to play them out) are here in abundance, and so are the darker-edged, lean & popping beats and surprising samples that he does so incredibly well! Another great piece of work from one of the most innovative producers of the last couple of decades. Lots of tracks and skits including "Make Room", "So What", "The Drive By", "Politics Of The Business", "What I Need" and more. Dialogue sample: "C'mon Paul, this is backpacking music. We'll be lucky if we can go double wood with this $h!t. Take back these wackass records and bring me something I can sell!" Highly recommended! CD

New VariousCommedia Sexy All'Italia ... CD
Mediane (Italy), 2007. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really crazy little package – one that's filled with sexy images from Italian comedies of the 60s and 70s – and packaged with a special CD to match! The booklet itself is practically softcore porn (so be aware of that, you sensitive viewers!) – full color pages with images from the films, most of which feature ladies in some state of undress. And the CD's also pretty great too – and features 20 classic sex comedy themes that include "Sessomatto" by Armando Trovajoli, "Isola Tuttofare" by Piero Umiliani, "Fail Piano Fai Presto" by Gianni Ferrio, "Quel Gran Pezzo Dell'Ubalda" by Bruno Nicolai, "Curiosita Infantili" by Fred Bongusto, "Vieni Avanti Cretino" by Lino Fanfi, and "Rio 70" by Nylon.
