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". (Cover has some wear, a split bottom seam and partially split top seam.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

70's issue of material that was too raunchy to be released in the 60's.

Buddah, 1975. Near Mint-
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!

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
