Laurie AndersonBig Science ... LP
Warner, 1982. Near Mint- ... $14.99
One of the greatest albums to come from the New York underground of the early 80s – even if it was a relatively big "hit" on a major label! Laurie Anderson is in perfect form here – drawing on a strong tradition of avant garde performance, but without any of the indulgences that would mire down performance art in years to come. Instead, she's got a clean, clear style that's simply amazing – spoken passages that are poetic and pointed, but which also have a slight undercurrent of wit – a charming quality that never takes itself too seriously, even when the sounds and styles are somewhat dark. Instrumentation includes some great rhythm passages from David Van Tieghem, plus surprising performances from Rufus Harley on bagpipes and George Lewis on trombone. Titles include "From The Air", "Big Science", "O Superman", "Born Never Asked", "Walking & Falling", "Example #22", "Let X = X", and "It Tango". (Rock, Comedy/Spoken) LP, Vinyl record album

BlowflyRappin' Dancin' & Laughin' ... LP
Weird World, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Blowfly changes up his groove nicely for the 80s – taking on a tightly-stepping approach to funk that's clearly inspired by some of the changes on the west coast scene – using Zapp-ish rhythms in a mode that ends up working pretty darn well for his off-color spoken lyrics! There's almost a P-Funk quality to the record – especially as the themes get a bit more political and current events-ish than usual – trading the easy sex jokes for some other comic fare on tunes that include "Convoy", "Blowfly Vs. Darth Vadar", "The Incredible Fulk", and "The Insects Theme". (Soul, Comedy/Spoken) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Leonard BernsteinWhat Is Jazz? ... CD
Sony, 1956. Used ... $8.99
Hilarious! Always one to try to prove that he wasn't just a stodgy uptowner, Leonard Bernstein cut this album as a "guide to jazz" – featuring narration by Mr. B himself, plus playing by Miles Davis, Buck Clayton, Teo Macero, and Louis Armstrong. The record traces the evolution of jazz – with some very nice, very square dialogue by Bernstein. Not really the kind of thing you'll put on at home – but a great record to dig samples from! (Jazz, Comedy/Spoken) CD
(Out of print.)
