✨✧ Last PoetsChastisment ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
One of their greatest, and one of the early ones with Jalal – who gave the group a much more lyrical sound, with more of an emphasis on song construction and music, instead of just vocalizing ideas. Includes the great "Birds Word", an early jazz-rap cut that's a precursor to Gang Starr's "Jazz Thing", plus "Before the White Man Came", "Black Soldier", "Hands Off", and "Jazzoetry". (Soul, Comedy/Spoken) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ken NordineHow Are Things In Your Town? ... LP
Blue Thumb, Late 50s/Early 60s/1971. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Wild! This is an excellent compilation of material from Nordine's earlier Word Jazz albums on Dot – repackaged in a very hip version, for the hippie crowd that was rediscovering him at the time. The album includes an incredible selection of Nordine's weird productions, with lots of spacey sounds, odd vocal techniques, and an incredibly compelling approach to sonic narrative. Titles include "Outer Space", "Firefly", "Confessions of 349-18-5171", "Roger", "Looks Like Rain", "Lemming", "Original Sin", and "Smerd". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)
