In Living Black & White

LP (Item 571045) Colpix, 1961 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 44

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.

East & West
Colpix, 1961. Near Mint-
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Woody Allen
Colpix, 1964. Near Mint-
Woody's very first LP – and a pretty great album of standup material, cut back when he was just a budding writer for TV. The set was recorded at Mr Kelly's in Chicago, and has an easy going flow – with Woody just talking his way through material, almost in a Lenny Bruce sort of way. LP, Vinyl record album

Audio Masterworks, 1956. Very Good-
A very weird little record – hardly the kind of "informative" album that you'd guess from the cover and liner notes, and really just a great live recording by Murray Banks – who's got an approach here that's a fair bit like Lenny Bruce! Banks tells it like it is on a variety ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wish It Would Rain
Gordy, 1968. Very Good
An excellent album by the Temps – one that shows the group digging a bit deeper for a harder soul sound, working in a mode that would soon explode into the heavier numbers that would transform their sound completely. Norman Whitfield had a big part in this – as he's the producer of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lonely Teardrops
Brunswick, 1959. Very Good-
Jackie Wilson's second album, where he really moves into hit-bound territory – kicking off with the sublime crossover classic "Lonely Teardrops", a tune that burns equally on rock, soul, and R&B fronts – then rolls into a batch of jaunty little numbers that really showcase ...
