Straight/Rhino, 1956. Used
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 ... CD

RCA, 1976. Very Good+
A pretty decent, and pretty obscure, album of 70s comedy by David Banks – who has kind of a righteous black hipster approach. Titles include "Soul Clap", "Throw The Sheet Over The Piano", "Big Chief", "Don't Cry Baby", and "Baseball", and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Struggle
Black America/Buddah, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Baldwin speaks on his thoughts, his writings, and art in general – in a rare recorded performance that goes beyond the scope of his usual fiction. There's no other backing, and the LP is a nice intimate moment with Baldwin, whose voice is as beautiful and haunting as his writings! LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists, 1961/1967. Near Mint-
A stripped down version of a record that was also issued in 3LP format, and which features some real gems from Lenny's 1961 concert at Carnegie Hall.

St. Johns, 1976. Near Mint-
Muhammad Ali's in for the biggest fight of the decade – as he tries to knock out tooth decay! Fortunately, he's got some help from famous friends like Frank Sinatra, Richie Havens, Ossie Davis, and Jayne Kennedy – so the going isn't too tough. Supposedly, this is volume 1 of the ...

Wild & Crazy Guy
Warner, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold
Steve Martin at the height of his powers – when he was hitting on all burners with his TV specials, nightclub appearances, and radio airplay.

Katz Puts On The Dog!
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good
Oy! Nice original pressing of one of Mickey Katz's crazy albums of borscht-belt parodies of current pop songs. He takes his clarinet and razor sharp wit to such tracks as "Nature Boy (Nature Bocher)", "Hey! Jealous Lover", and "Muskrat Rumble (Moskivitz Ramble)". ... LP, Vinyl record album

Douglas, Early 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint-
70's issue of material that was too raunchy to be released in the 60's. This is Lenny Bruce at his finest, with some of the best little bits that made him famous (including many of the ones that were used in the movie Lenny). Good live recordings, and a nice cover featuring Lenny in a mug shot. LP, Vinyl record album

Colpix, 1963. Sealed

Wise Crack (UK), Late 50s. New Copy
Late 50s pop satire and novelty genius from Dickie Goodman – who breaks into the pop hits of the day with wild eyed, b-movie steeped alerts about Flying Saucers, Frankenstein, and thematically comical mash ups of hits and adverts! Crazy pop pastiche and comically spliced bits of 50s radio ... CD
