Sheldon AllmanFolk Songs For The 21st Century (radioactive green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Hi Fi/Modern Harmonic, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
Not only a wonderfully weird vocal record – but a set that's also one of the first albums produced by the legendary David Axelrod! David's hardly the star here, though – as the whole thing's really the brainchild of singer Sheldon Allman – more of a nightclub singer than the folk ...

BlowflyBlowfly On TV ... LP
Weird World, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
Blow Fly's second album – and a hilarious parody of TV! The record features Blow's band playing lots of funky riffs and heavy vamps, while Blow sings songs over the top that are parodies of "Batman", "Sesame Street", "Tom Jones", and "Ed Sullivan" ...

Del Close & John BrentHow To Speak Hip ... LP
Mercury/Go Bop (Germany), 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
A hilarious album – not dated at all, and really pretty groovy stuff that holds up well over time! The format is this: Brent and Close are the hippie and straight man – presenting a guide to talking "hip", which is a mixture of beatnik and junkie slang, delivered in a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Allen GinsbergAllen Ginsberg Reads Kaddish – A 20th Century American Ecstatic Narrative Poem (red colored vinyl) ... LP
Atlantic/Real Gone, 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99 20.98
The one-and-only entry in the Verbatum series from Atlantic Records – a proposed spoken word offshoot of the label – but one that only ever issued this fantastic 60s reading by Allen Ginsberg! As you might guess from the cover's beautiful photograph by Richard Avedon, Ginsberg is at ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

GundellaHour Of The Witch (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Modern Harmonic, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
One of the creepiest albums we've ever heard – vintage recordings of Gundella, a Detroit-based, self-proclaimed witch – and one who actually received quite a bit of notoriety back in the day! Gundella's voice is very down to earth – she sounds as she looks on the cover, maybe ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Wendell HarrisonEvening With The Devil ... LP
Tribe, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the rare early albums on the Detroit based Tribe label, now made legendary by the compilations on Soul Jazz and PVine.

Irreversible EntanglementsIrreversible Entanglements ... LP
International Anthem/Don Giovanni, 2017. New Copy ... $18.99
A fantastic mix of jazz and spoken word performance – delivered in a very righteous style that takes us back to the best vintage sides by artists like Wanda Robinson or Jayne Cortez! The words here are by Camae Ayewa – whose lyrics are as politically powerful as her presentation style ... (Jazz, Comedy/Spoken) read more LP, Vinyl record album

KainBlue Guerrilla ... LP
Juggernaut, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
One of the rawest, hardest-hitting albums of soul poetry of the 70s! Kain – aka Gylan Kain – was a member of the original Last Poets, a group who emerged in New York during the late 60s, but were eclipsed by the second (more famous) ensemble sharing the name who recorded for Douglas ...

Lightnin' RodHustlers Convention ... LP
Celluloid, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Fantastic stuff – incredibly hard and incredibly funky, and a masterpiece all the way through! Long before there was any talk of gangster rap, Jalal of the Last Poets recorded this album of gamblin', pimpin', and hard double dealin'. It's a fantastic album-long ride through the dark side of ... (Soul, Comedy/Spoken) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rudy Ray MooreCockpit – The Third Rudy Ray Moore Album ... LP
Kent, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Rudy Ray Moore flies the friendly skies – and turns out one of his best records of the 70s! The set is easily one of the tightest albums from Rudy's classic years – and uses a fair bit of musical backings beneath his very raunchy comedy – in ways that are sometimes funky, but ...

Sunny MurrayEven Break (Never Give A Sucker) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
One of the best-ever BYG/Actuel sessions, and one that has the unlikely pairing of east coast avant players Sonny Murray and Byard Lancaster, with Art Ensemble Of Chicago bassist Malachi Favors! Murray plays drums, and reads a bit of poetry, while the band wails behind him in powerful turgid lines ... (Jazz, Comedy/Spoken) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Leonard NimoyMr Spock's Music From Outer Space (2017 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Dot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Holy cow! Although some of Leonard Nimoy's albums were attempts to "get past" his Spock career, this one is a full-on Star Trek experience! Nimoy's on the cover, holding a replica of The Enterprise in front of some weird spider web design. On the wax, he's laying down great space stuff ...
