✨✧ Bill CosbyHooray For The Salvation Army Band! ... LP
Warner, 1968. Very Good- ... $4.99
An early funk album by Bill Cosby – with backing by the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band! Bill was pals with Charles Wright and crew in the hip LA of the late 60s, and he was also responsible for bringing the group to Warner Brothers – so the fit here is quite a natural one.

Warner, 1975. Very Good- ... $0.99

✨✧ Elijah MuhammadMuhammad Speaks Vol 1 – The Judgment Of The World Is Now ... LP
Muhammed's Mosque of Islam, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $11.99
Elijah Muhammad speaks out on this self-released LP from (we think) some time in the 60's. Kind of eerie, with a spooky recording quality, and a voice that sounds like it's come back from the dead. Heavy stuff, though, and a nice relic of the man, with striking photos on both the front and back ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Pigmeat MarkhamHere Comes The Judge (Chess pressing) ... LP
Chess, Late 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Maybe Pigmeat's best album for Chess – done with a host of judicial references to Pigmeat's big "Here Comes The Judge" routine. That one's on here – with the great funky backing of Pigmeat's version for Chess as a funky 45 – and the album includes a number of other nice ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fantasy/Craft, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $43.99 49.99
Maybe one of the coolest albums of poetry ever recorded – a set that features a young, pre-hippie Allen Ginsberg – delivering his epic poem Howel, plus some other key works too. The young Ginsberg's voice is great – and really fills the works with a lot of bitterness and cynicism ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Richard PryorWho Me? I'm Not Him ... LP
Laff, 1977. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Excellent work from Richard Pryor's early years – a record done in the usual "party" style of the Laff label, but with a freewheeling and hip approach to the material that finds its humor in far more than just blue topics and sexual double-entendres! Pryor is frenetic and energetic ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jimmy LynchN*gger Please! ... LP
Laff, Mid 70s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The cover bills this one as "The Funky Tramp, clean-n-up, but stay-n-funky" – but to our ears, the record's as raw and raunchy as any other Jimmy Lynch classic from the time! The set's a masterpiece in the party record vein – Jimmy's badass raps and off-color jokes, supported ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
