✨✧ Laurie AndersonBig Science ... LP
Warner, 1982. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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
(Cover has a promo stamp, light wear, and a peeled spot at the center.)

Laurie Anderson/John Giorno/William S BurroughsYou're The Guy I Want To Share My Money With ... LP
Giorno Poetry Systems, 1981. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
A really wonderful record from a really wonderful time when it seemed like boundaries were really breaking down – not just between musical genres, but between different sides of the art spectrum as well! The record is partly experimental art, but has a crossover appeal to post-punk sensibilities too – thanks both to Anderson's wit, and John Giorno's sense of playful production. Wonderful work from all three artists – and not issued elsewhere. (Rock, Comedy/Spoken) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

BlowflyBlowfly's Party ... LP
Weird World, 1980. Very Good ... $4.99
It's the end of the 70s, but Blowfly's still going strong on this album! The record features his "Blowfly's Rapp" – billed as "the dirtiest rap ever heard", and certainly true in those pre-gangsta days! The rest of the tracks are a mix of boogie grooves, late 70s club rhythms, and a few southern soul numbers – all featuring x-rated lyrics from Blow. Titles include "Blowfly's Rapp", "Can I Come In Your Mouth", "Who Did I Eat Last Night?", "Nobody's Butt But Yours, Babe", and "Panty Lines". (Soul, Comedy/Spoken) LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing.)
