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 ...
Ode, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
We don't know about you, but we never get tired of Cheech & Chong's jokes about reefer and East LA. Loads of great pot jokes on this album with the nice rolling paper gatefold sleeve, including "Sister Mary Elephant", "Ralph & Herbie", "Streets Of New York Or Los ...
T&L, 1967. Very Good
Raw and raunchy comedy from Chicago "party" comic Tommy Brown. Not as over the top as Rudy Ray Moore – but still a good example of the blue comedy that was happening in the small club scene back in the 60s and 70s. ...

Mercury, 1981. Very Good
Buddah, 1975. Very Good+
The lasting recorded legacy of Jimmy Walker – and material that shows a much sharper, much smarter side of his personality than his character on Good Times! Walker's got a fast-talking, bad-rapping approach that's definitely rooted in the party record scene of the 60s – yet which is ...

Little David, 1977. Very Good+
George Carlin at the height of his powers – back when he still had a good batch of hair on the top of his head, and worked in that uptightly rambling style that was a direct heir to the innovations of Lenny Bruce in the 50s! As with Bruce, Carlin manages to illuminate topics both mundane and ...

Coral, Mid 60s. Very Good-
Dot, Late 50s. Very Good-
Nice one! This is Ken Nordine's follow-up to his highly successful Word Jazz album, and it's another crazy batch of jazz-meets-beat poetry-meets-goofy stuff. Ken Nordine's wit is razor sharp as usual, and the tracks include "The Bullfighter", "Junk Man", "Looking At ...

Pepsi Cola, Late 60s. Very Good+
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good+
Moms takes her case to the White House – yakking it up with the usual hint at off-color comedy, and a knack for a soulful approach that actually helped her bridge more audiences than other African American comics of the time. Routines include "Me & LBJ", "The Beggar The ...
