Sebastian CabotSebastian Cabot, Actor/Bob Dylan, Poet – A Dramatic Reading With Music ... LP
MGM, 1967. Sealed ... $13.99
One of the strangest albums to come out of the late 60s spoken word record boom – a collection of Bob Dylan tunes, read with a heavy English accent by actor Sebastian Cabot! Cabot's probably best known for his roles in the shows Checkmate and Family Affair – and he uses that familiar growly voice to great effect here on Dylan's tunes – spitting them out with a slightly bitter quality that's a fair bit different than Bob's original versions, but still very much in the same spirit! The backings are relatively spare – bits of strings, guitar, and other instrumentation – all handled by Irving Spice – and tunes include "It Ain't Me Babe", "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right", "Like A Rolling Stone", and "Blowin In The Wind". One of the best examples of "establishment hip" we can think of – and it's records like this that took more steam out of the left than Barry Goldwater ever did! LP, Vinyl record album

Leo Burnett/Dick MarxMusic Music Music – Recorded At The Leo Burnett Company Breakfast Meeting 1972 ... LP
Leo Burnett, 1972. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A totally great record for fans of the golden age of advertising – a set of classic jingles put together by the Leo Burnett advertising agency – work done for Schlitz, Kellogg, Pillsbury, Marlboro, Green Giant, United Airlines, and older corporate giants! The set is live, but the quality of the songs is great – and Dick Marx provides musical backings. (Sound Library, Spoken Word) LP, Vinyl record album

Tony SchwartzMusic In The Streets – A Fascinating Collection Of Music & Musicians Recorded On The Streets On New York City ... CD
Folkways, 1957. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
A vivid audio document of New York City in the late 50s – put together by creative sound recorder Tony Schwartz! The set's one of a few amazing albums put together by Schwartz – who spent a lot of time on the streets with his microphones and recorder, then really got creative putting the whole thing together in the studio – so that there's some good structure, and almost a sense of narrative to the record – yet in a way that also preserves all of the vivid, spontaneous aspects of the "on the street" recordings. Schwartz narrates a bit, includes some interviews, background sounds from certain areas of the city, and a range of performances in styles that run from jazz to folk to gospel and beyond! CD
(Special limited CD – pressed up for us by the Smithsonian Folkways label. Comes with original cover artwork, and the CD also features a PDF file with the original liner notes and other materials from the original record release.)

Robert AshleyPrivate Parts ... LP
Lovely, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
One of the most important records from composer Robert Ashley – and one that's got a compact approach that helped it circulate a lot more than some of Ashley's larger operas! This piece is very much like those – with Ashley's unique spoken approach – part poetry, part performance art – but the sound is more stripped-down, and in the spirit of the young downtown New York generation of Laurie Anderson and Phillip Glass – served up with great instrumental help from contemporary Blue Gene Tyranny, who plays piano, moog, and clavinet – with some additional tablas for accompaniment! The whole thing was recorded at the important Center For Contemporary Music on the west coast, at Mills College – and is almost a Bay Area answer to some of the more compelling art records from the New York scene. The record is divided into 2 parts – "The Park" and "The Backyard" – both filled with a hypnotic mix of voice, keyboards, and tablas! (Out Sound, Spoken Word) LP, Vinyl record album

Amiri BarakaIt's Nation Time ... LP
Black Forum/Motown, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99
An amazing record that's as powerful as the political message of the title – the hippest record ever cut by Amiri Baraka, and that's saying a heck of a lot! Baraka delivers a long and complex set of poetic reflections on the state of Black America, spiritual awakening, and political redemption – set to musical backings that shift from funky, to jazz, to avant, and back again. Players on the set include Gary Bartz, Lonnie Liston Smith, Idris Muhammad, and Reggie Workman – and there's a host of additional players, percussionists, and vocalists that join Amiri in the delivery of his message. Titles include "Answers In Progress", "Peace In Place", "Bad News For Your Highness", "Was Gon Happen", "All In The Street", "Pamoja Tutashinda", and "Pull The Covers Off". One to listen to when you get past your Last Poets records! LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie CanoTaste Of Education ... LP
CP, 1972. Very Good ... $34.99
One of the most obscure albums from Latin piano giant Eddie Cano – recorded after his famous groovers of the 60s! The record's an odd one, but it's got some great moments – partly a Spanish language instruction record, but with music by Eddie – so that you'll have these spoken parts teaching spanish, while Eddie grooves along with some rhythms and piano. The mix is strangely compelling, and the album does feature two nice instrumentals too. (Latin, Spoken Word) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear, and a small bit of pen.)
